October 23, 2008 to January 7, 2009
In the adjacent galleries, Dr. Panza and his wife, Giovanna, curate the second installment of the Hirshhorn’s onging series Ways of Seeing. This series invites noted artists, collectors, filmmakers, and others to explore the Museum’s holdings of nearly 12,000 artworks and create installations that reflect their own unique perspectives, encouraging new ways of looking at the collection. Dr. and Mrs. Panza’s selection features paintings and sculptures dating from the 1960s and 1970s, including pieces by Donald Judd and Agnes Martin, alongside earlier works by artists such as Constantin Brancusi, Robert Rauschenberg, and Mark Rothko.

The Panza Collection is organized by the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden. The exhibition is made possible by the Holenia Trust, in memory of Joseph H. Hirshhorn, the Friends of Jim and Barbara Demetrion Endowment Fund, and the Hirshhorn’s Board of Trustees, with additional support from the Museum’s National Benefactors.
