Washington, DC—The four organizing institutions of Philip Guston Now—the National Gallery of Art, Washington, Tate Modern, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, 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, to September 11, 2022; The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, from October 23, 2022, to January 15, 2023; the National Gallery of Art, Washington, from February 26, 2023, to August 27, 2023 ; and Tate Modern from October 3, 2023, to 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. At the Gallery, internal and external conversations will consider the exhibition's impact and related programming. The Gallery intends to present Guston's career in full, including the works from the artist's 1970 Marlborough Gallery show that feature hooded figures.

"Navigating the exhibition schedules of four institutions, amid a global pandemic, has been complicated, but we are glad to be able to share a new schedule for the tour of Philip Guston Now beginning in 2022," said Kaywin Feldman, director, National Gallery of Art, Washington. "This additional time will allow us to slow down, get past COVID, and bring the Gallery's community together in person for challenging conversations that will help inform how we rethink the exhibition."

Exhibition Support

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