Opening Reception for Five New Exhibitions

Every inch of the museum will whir with new art and energy.

Join us at UMOCA as we unveil five new exhibitions and introduce our newest gallery: A-I-R Space and the reimagined Codec Gallery.

Main Gallery
PANOPTICON
Visibility, data and the monitoring gaze.
This exhibition reveals the shifting relationships between discipline and governance, security and exposure as artists revisit the “gaze” using surveillance equipment as a medium.

Street Gallery
CHURCH vs STATE
Contemporary collecting praxis.
Utah is not unique in that the state government plays a large role in shaping culture and social practice; however, what sets Utah apart is the influence of one specific religion—the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and its enormous influence on the identity, philosophy, and arts of the Beehive State.

Projects Gallery
PAM BOWMAN: AGGREGATION
Employing fibers and textiles as both material and language, Provo-based artist Pam Bowman creates intricate installations to explore themes of home and community.

Codec Gallery
SOPHIE CALLE: UNFINISHED
The databank as a cybernetic Panopticon
Calle manipulates situations and individuals, and often adopts guises in order to pursue and interrogate her subjects, the evidence of which results in conceptual projects, photo-text installations, and books.

A-I-R Space
JONATHAN FRIOUX: POLARITIES
Threading colors together across a coordinate system, Jonathan Frioux’s Polarities reaches back to the past to find forms for the present.
