Shatter Rupture Break is a digital catalogue that documents the experimental exhibition of the same name devoted to the theme of fragmentation in life and art in the modern age. The first in the Art Institute’s new Modern Series, the exhibition offered fresh and innovative ways to consider the collection beyond standard practices. The same is true for this publication, which features a unique design catered to individual exploration. The digital catalogue includes an interactive section of works and didactics, an exhibition checklist, installation photographs, transcripts and videos of related events, and a compilation of visitor reactions.
8 hours 26 min ago The Art Institute of Chicago Mary Cassatt was the only American artist to exhibit with the original Impressionist group. This sensitive portrayal of a mother and child reflects the most advanced 19th-century ideas about raising children. Scientists and physicians of the day encouraged mothers (instead of wet nurses and nannies) to care for their children and to include regular bathing in their hygiene practices to prevent disease. #5WomenArtists
