Looking Forward to Spring! UMOCA’s Schedule of Events Through May.

Analogital

Analogital is an exhibition of international artists who engage with concepts generated from the transitional space between analogue and digital forms. This exhibition identifies a perceptual evolution in the human experience that emerges from our culture’s conversion of film grain to computer pixel.

Exhibit runs now thru APR 20

 

Venessa Gromek:
The Sublime is Light and Easy-To-Assemble

Stemming from her passion for the outdoor industry and her interest in how that industry intersects with notions of the sublime, artist Venessa Gromek creates tent-like sculptures that engage with concepts of abstract artwork, euphoric experience, and impossible functionality.

Exhibit runs now thru APR 27

 

Ignacio Uriarte: Binaries

Spanish-born, Berlin-based artist Ignacio Uriarte came to art unconventionally through business administration and pursuing a life in the office. UMOCA is proud to present  Binaries, an immersive survey into the labor-intensive research of the office as a total medium.

Opening Reception MAR 1, 8-10PM
Artist Q&A MAR 1, 7-8PM
Gallery Walkthrough with the artist 9PM

 

Ana Prvacki: Neutralize Negative Feelings

Using social codes and cultural structures as a raw material, Serbian-born, Los Angeles-based artist Ana Prvacki  turns the rituals of hospitality into a theater of performance by historicizing codes of imposed etiquette with the motivational sloganeering of past generations.

Opening Reception MAR 1, 8-10PM
Gallery Walkthrough with the artist 9PM

Utah Biennial of Contemporary Art
Mondo Utah

UMOCA’s inaugural biennial, Mondo Utah, will look backward into the evolution of contemporary art within Utah to create a formal index of the state’s cultural landscape. The first of UMOCA’s new biennial exhibitions will examine ways in which artists have used Utah as a site, subject, purpose, meaning and material.

Opening Reception MAY 17, 8-10PM
Runs MAY 17 – SEP 21
