The Cornell Fine Arts Museum at Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida announces Fractured Narratives: a strategy to engage, the first exhibition inspired by the Alfond Collection of Contemporary Art at Rollins College.

On view September 17, 2014 to January 4, 2015, the exhibition features work by established and emerging artists who address contemporary global issues such as privacy, modern warfare, the environment, and freedom of expression. Fractured Narratives aims to provoke critical dialogue and reflection by engaging visitors with the challenging ambiguities of complex narratives. The selected works offer diverse and nuanced considerations of the changing political, cultural, psychological, and social context of the past ten years.

Co-curated by Cornell Fine Arts Museum Curator Amy Galpin and independent curator Abigail Ross Goodman, the exhibition features film, photography, painting, sculpture, and sound by 14 artists from around the world: Dawoud Bey, Omer Fast, Eric Gottesman, Jenny Holzer, Alfredo Jaar, Amar Kanwar, William Kentridge, An-My Lê, Maya Lin, Goshka Macuga, “Moris” Israel Moreno, Rivane Neuenschwander, Trevor Paglen, and Martha Rosler.  


The Cornell Fine Arts Museum at Rollins College is the only teaching museum in the greater Orlando area. The Museum’s encyclopedic collection, recognized as one of the largest and most distinguished collections in Florida, includes more than 5,000 objects ranging from antiquity through contemporary eras.
