Cubism is defined as a way of making art that replaced traditional perspectives by challenging the very idea of how we see, and is one of the greatest artistic developments of the 20th century. Characterized by fractured viewpoints, abstracted forms, and works that defy long-accepted notions of dimensionality, Cubism can be intellectually challenging but also beautiful in how it reflected the dynamism, rhythm, and questioning of norms that marked much of the early 1900s.

With masterpieces by the two pioneering rebels of Cubism - Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque - the exhibition will also feature works by other 20th-century artists who took inspiration from their revolutionary ideas, including John Marin, Fannie Hillsmith, Texas artist Bill Reily, and others.
