*COLUMBUS MUSEUM OF ART, 480 E. Broad St., 614-221-6801. T-W, Th 10-8:30, F 10-5, S-S 10-5:30. Paul-Henri Bourguignon: 50th-Anniversary Retrospective (Ends Jan. 18) In 1964, the Columbus Museum of Art held an exhibition of the work of Belgian artist Paul-Henri Bourguignon (1906–1988). Fifty years later the museum celebrates the work of this talented visual artist, who was a prolific writer and journalist, a skillful photographer, and an avid observer of the human condition. In _ We Trust: Art and Money (Ends Mar. 1, 2015) Money. It is a simple fact of everyday life, as well as, a fundamental principal of our social, political, and economic order. It is a medium of exchange, an index and store of value, and a universal equivalent into which most anything can dissolve. It connects, defines, and divides nations. It is pocket change and dead presidents. It is the key to happiness and the root of all evil. It has no intrinsic value apart from what we’ve given it. Money is an idea, a social contract, and one that depends on frequently-tested collective emotional states like trust, faith, and confidence. With work by more than 20 artists and collectives from diverse international backgrounds, the exhibition In __ We Trust addresses this complex nature of money, as well as, its relationship to art. Works in the exhibition take currency as a material or subject, involve transactions, precious materials, and alternative forms of exchange. Anchored by select pieces from previous decades, the exhibition focuses on work made since the 2008 financial crisis. Artists include JSG Boggs, Sarah Cain, Susan Collis, Moyra Davey, e-flux Time/Bank, Claire Fontaine, Tom Friedman, Meschac Gaba, Ryan Gander, Roger Hiorns, William E. Jones, Komar & Melamid, Gabriel Kuri, Shane Mecklenburger, Cildo Meireles, Ester Partegas, Paul Ramirez Jonas, Hugh Scott-Douglas, Superflex, Mark Wagner, Nari Ward, Andy Warhol and Robert Wechsler. Together, they explore issues of representation, value and exchange that have both personal and global impact. Mobile Photo Now (Feb. 26 to Mar. 22) highlighting the emerging art form of mobile photography, and the power of social media and smart phones as a means of creative expression. In the fall of 2012, CMA became the first museum in the world to present a curated, crowdsourced exhibition based on the photography app Instagram. Now the museum and the #jj community, the largest photo community on Instagram, present this worldwide mobile photography exhibition. Visit
