"In Dialogue: Artist, Mentor, Friend: Ronald Lockett and Thornton Dial Sr." — This exhibition will focus on one work by each artist, both gifts from Ron Shelp, comparing their approach to their work and examining the shared relationship that sustained their creativity.

"Whitman, Alabama" — This ongoing documentary project by filmmaker Jennifer Crandall brings Walt Whitman’s words to life through the voices of modern-day Alabama residents.

"Kota Ezawa: The Crime of Art" — This exhibition will bring together new and recent works related to Ezawa’s “The Crime of Art” series, a group of light-boxes and video animations that chronicle some of the most infamous and high profile museum heists in history.

"Neo-Abstraction: Celebrating a Gift of Contemporary Art from John and Sara Shlesinger" — “Neo-Abstraction” highlights the resurgence of abstract art among contemporary artists, drawing from a recent major gift.

"Inside Look: Selected Acquisitions from the Georgia Museum of Art" — With more than 18,000 objects in its collection, the museum cannot show everything all the time. This exhibition features new gifts and purchases across our curatorial departments that have filled critical gaps in the permanent collections.
