New Schedule for "Philip Guston Now" Announced

BOSTON (November 5, 2020)—The four organizing institutions of Philip Guston Now—the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA), the National Gallery of Art, Washington, Tate Modern and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston—have announced a new schedule for the exhibition’s tour. The retrospective will be presented at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, from May 1, 2022 through September 11, 2022; at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, from October 23, 2022 through January 15, 2023; at the National Gallery from February 26, 2023 through August 27, 2023; and at Tate Modern from October 3, 2023 through February 4, 2024. 

Leading into the new tour, the four venues will work in partnership on a retrospective that represents the full breadth of Guston’s 50-year career.

“We are proud to be the opening venue for Philip Guston Now. Guston’s progressive commitment to pro-democratic and anti-racist issues caused him to search for a new and revolutionary language of art to speak illuminatingly across time. It was, and it is, his inspiring achievement. As we work to rethink the presentation of the exhibition we acknowledge that museums must meet and create our own moment of shared understanding and direct engagement with the voices of many—and we will,” said Matthew Teitelbaum, Ann and Graham Gund Director.

Major support for the international tour of the exhibition is provided by the Terra Foundation for American Art.
