Leeza Meksin’s large-scale installations explore relationships between buildings and bodies by dressing up inanimate structures in architectural fashion. Construct your own costume art that relates what we wear to the structures in which we live by creating a wearable headpiece based on the colors and shapes of your favorite Salt Lake City building.
When Flesh Becomes Matter: Bodies Unbounded
Join UMOCA at the kick-off event for the application period of our LGBTQIA+ youth-focused program, Out Loud, with a body and movement performance by Yasin “Ya-Ya” Fairley. When Flesh Becomes Matter will incorporate concepts including, but not limited to, race, objecthood, inclusion, and gender. Performances at 6:00, 6:30, and 7:00 PM, followed by a movement workshop led by Ya-Ya that is open to the public.
Like the other artists featured in the exhibition, Object[ed], Tove Storch uses the language of sculpture to visualize possibilities that exist outside of rigid expectations. Storch layers flat drawings between hard steel rails, transforming flat imagery into 3D geometric forms. Overturn your expectations for sculptural materials by drawing in three dimensions with colorful wire!
These tours offer parents, guardians and caregivers an opportunity to experience the museum’s current exhibits with their young children in tow beginning before the doors open to the public.
Stroller Tours are designed to ease concerns associated with talkative children and crying babies by providing an exclusive time for museum exploration and tailored, grown-up discussions free of pressure. The current tours will explore UMOCA’s newest Main Gallery exhibition, Object[ed].
Please remember, touching the art is not allowed. We recommend toddlers remain in their strollers. Please RSVP to email@example.com.
Created in collaboration with Easy to Love, Hard to Raise, SENSE/ABILITY aims to foster an accepting and understanding museum environment, in which sensory-sensitive children and their families will feel comfortable and included while discovering social concepts found in our exhibitions.
Winter/Spring 2016 tours will embrace a youthful perspective on the exhibitions currently in UMOCA’s gallery spaces. The global social issues that are expressed through the art will be simplified and edited by our educators in a way that that can be grasped and recreated in a specially tailored children’s art-making activity following each tour.
