How does the state of the 21st century world impact the stories artists tell? See how issues of identity, migration and the digital revolution are considered by international contemporary artists during the Toledo Museum of Art’s next exhibition, Global Conversations: World Art in Dialogue, featuring around 50 works, ranging from sculpture, painting, studio glass, works on paper and mixed media. “Through innovative uses of media and scale, these artists contend with some of the most pressing issues of our time,” said Halona Norton-Westbrook, director of curatorial affairs at TMA. “The display will highlight the stories of the people, places and materials that are intimately interwoven into… these compelling contemporary global works of art.”

This year-long installation opens on Saturday, March 9.
