Access this free online catalogue

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.
