Organized by the Taubman Museum of Art featuring works from the Beth Rudin DeWoody Collection, A Very Anxious Feeling: Voices of Unrest in the American Experience shines light on the widespread feelings of anxiety in contemporary art.

The exhibition amplifies the voices and experiences of Latinx and Latin American artists living and working in the United States, with all works acquired by Beth Rudin DeWoody over the past twenty years.
The show will include over 70 works by 58 artists including Farley Aguilar, Carlos Almaraz, Candida Alvarez, José Alvarez, Firelei Báez, Margarita Cabrera, Gisela Colón, Sebastian Errazuriz, Monica Kim Garza, Ramiro Gomez, Patrick Martinez, Ana Mendieta, Zilia Sanchez, Eduardo Sarabia, Cecilia Vicuña and William Villalongo, among others.
