Artists turn to black and white to explore essential visual effects. These colors carry deep psychological meaning ranging from white's association with light and purity to black's connection to darkness and death. This exhibition looks at a fascinating array of contemporary art since 1970 that delves into the eternal mysteries of black and white.

It focuses on seminal movements such as Pop art, Process art, Light and Space, New Figuration, Appropriation art, and Expressionism – and includes works by Lita Albuquerque, Charles Arnoldi, Natalie Arnoldi, Richard Artschwager, John Baldessari, Larry Bell, Kelly Berg, Miriam Cabessa, Greg Colson, James Drake, Ned Evans, Channing Hansen, Jasper Johns, Mark Kostabi, Shinpei Kusanagi, Peter Lodato, Andy Moses, Ed Moses, Manfred Müller, James Austin Murray, Kaz Oshiro, Deborah Pelias, Robert Rauschenberg, Michael Rey, Ed Ruscha, Luis Alfonso Villalobos, Andy Warhol, and many others.
