Open only two days a week, the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts in the artistic Grand Center district of St Louis, Missouri, channels at least as much energy into organising its intensive programme of seminars, concerts and performances as it does into exhibitions. The museum represents a new philosophy in curation, with visitors invited to directly experience artwork in the absence of explanatory text and labels, and exhibitions focusing on the interplay between art and architecture. Exhibitions often consist of large-scale installations that explore themes such as the evolution of artwork, engaging with colour and universal manifestations of love.
Featured artists include architect Tadao Ando, who designed the building, Edith Dekyndt, Donald Judd, sculptor Richard Serra and photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto. Visitors can take a guided tour of the museum every Wednesday, and if you’re in the area on the first Friday of every month be sure to take advantage of the district’s regular open gallery evening, when the area comes alive with creativity.
