“The Expressive Voice: Brought to Light is a reinstallation of our permanent collection showcasing select works from Danforth Art’s collection of Boston Expressionism from the 1930s to today. Works on view highlight the mystical and spiritual aspects of the movement—the otherworldly that is “brought to light” on the canvas. Included in the exhibition are works by founding members of the movement—prominent Boston artists Karl Zerbe, Jack Levine, and Hyman Bloom—as well as like-minded artists representing later generations of the movement. Highlights include Hyman Bloom’s ethereal Séance II, Karl Zerbe’s imagined portrait Under the Chandelier, and Jason Berger’s gory Quincy Market.”
