Juan Logan, By Any Other Name, 2003

January 18, 2020 - May 20, 2020
Coe Gallery

Working out of his studio in Belmont, North Carolina, artist Juan Logan continues to expand the reach of his art’s unyielding call for social responsibility. A retired University of North Carolina Professor, Logan’s installations, sculptures, prints, and paintings are included in the collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Mint Museum of Art, and many more. Through his many exhibitions and a very successful career, Juan has amassed a never before seen collection of works from his friends and sources of inspiration in the art world. Not only will this exhibition will be the first to share his many holdings by the most important artists from the 1970s to the present, it will also be the first time Juan presents his own work in dialogue with his collection. The galleries will examine the role that Jasper Johns, Claes Oldenberg, Robert Motherwell, Thornton Dial, and more have played in Juan’s own practice as an artist and how collecting has informed his creative process.
