The Howard and Judie Ganek Collection

In the spring of 2018, the Norton Museum of Art formally announced the promised gift of an exceptional collection of contemporary art that Howard and Judie Ganek developed over the last four decades. The gift comprises over 100 paintings, sculptures, ceramics, and photo-based works, which will transform the Museum’s holdings in a manner comparable to the original gift of Museum Founder Ralph Norton. This exhibition offers a glimpse into their expansive collection featuring works by Matthew Barney, Ken Price, Gilbert & George, Anselm Kiefer, and Barbara Kruger, among others. The Ganek’s interest in engaging with stimulating, living artists, and embracing art that is not easily understood, has resulted in a dynamic collection that is underscored in this exhibition. It marks the second installation of their remarkable promised gift that first debuted in February 2019 and coincided with the Foster + Partners transformation.

Matthew Barney (American, born 1967), Cremaster 1: Green Lounge Manual: A diptych, 1995
