Wearable art takes the stage
Take a step into the intersection of art and fashion in MartyO: Social Security and Saki: Birds of a Different Feather. These exhibitions explore cultural themes of gender roles, consent, reproductive rights, self-worth, and stigmatism of society from fitting in, in a beautiful, unconventional way. Plus, live models will be showcasing additions pieces from the collection only available for view that evening.
Take a bite out of art
This mouth-watering exhibition explores the emotional connection we have with food through art through a true American icon…the burger. Duke Windsor: Nothing’s Impossible explores how you can illicit other senses through art and with just a picture we can imagine the smell and taste of our favorite burger.
There is art in creating the perfect burger and perfect bite, and that is something that is captured through this exhibition. Duke uses gold leaf throughout each of the paintings to pay tribute to the delectable burger and create a luminance.
Inspired by the pandemic and the effect it has had on our communal psyche, Neil Kendricks: Temple of Story features numerous drawings white charcoal/chalk on black paper, inspired by the stories Kendricks created during the pandemic along with scannable QR codes bringing visitors to audio readings of the story behind each. The exhibition also most notably features a large projection of a video depicting drawings done with Procreate drawing software, which evolves and morph over time.
Additionally, Kendricks collaborated with composer and musician Mike Mare to incorporate Mare’s atmospheric music and sound design with Kendricks’ narratives, allowing visitors to discover an intimacy with an unseen storyteller.
