Process

Process, curated by Matthew Gardocki
January 27 – May 13, 2017

Featuring work by: John Bauer, Christopher Duncan, Kara Joslyn, Lester Monzon, Julie Oppermann, Kim Rugg, Christopher Russell, Heidi Schwegler, Meghan Smythe, and Ryan Wallace, Process is a showcase of ten contemporary American artists who are reshaping the Process Art tradition into a profound expression of twenty-first century studio practice. Visitors can expect to encounter a fresh and perhaps unfamiliar field of art-making in which process is celebrated and the finished object is not always the principle focus.

Abandon All Hope

Abandon All Hope, Ye Who Enter Here, curated by Lee Cannarozzo
January 27 – May 13, 2017

Abandon All Hope, Ye Who Enter Here is an exhibition of two complete editions of Salvador Dali illustrated artist books: The Divine Comedy written by Dante Alighieri and The Decameron written by Giovanni Boccaccio. These books, completed in 1960 and 1972 respectively, together contain 110 prints authorized by the artist. A part of the Las Vegas Art Museum collection currently housed in the UNLV Marjorie Barrick Museum, this exhibition presents these illustrated texts in a dynamic manner. Contained within four display cases, the pages of these books will be turned every Tuesday and Friday throughout the course of the exhibition to reveal a new set of illustrations to the public. This constantly evolving exhibition is an invitation for students, scholars, and faculty to view these surreal works of art and to participate in a conversation about the cultural resonance of Medieval Italian texts.

Masking

Masking, curated by Karen Roop
January 27 – December 16, 2017

This exhibition combines traditional Mexican masks with contemporary artwork to blur the lines between art and artifice, self and other, being and nonbeing. Far from static artifacts, masks point to shifting meanings and challenge us to question notions of identity. Karen Roop's enthusiasm for new ways of diversifying UNLV’s English curriculum has led to years of fruitful collaboration with the Marjorie Barrick Museum, where students have learned to assimilate the visual arts into their critical vocabularies. Roop will integrate Masking, her first curation, into ENG 101 classes during the Fall semester.

Josh Azzarella Screenings
January 28 – May 13, 2017

The UNLV Marjorie Barrick Museum is pleased to present a semester-long video screening series featuring works by Josh Azzarella. Josh Azzarella creates videos and photographs that explore the power of context in the authorship of memory, oftentimes utilizing seminal moments in pop culture and news media to create accessible confrontations with historiography. By illuminating the individual encounter with communal experiences, Azzarella evaluates the perception of realness – which can ultimately be rooted in both the fantastic as much as the pragmatic.

Screenings occur every Thursday (4-7pm) and Saturday (1pm and 3pm), and by appointment in the Barrick Museum Auditorium. The 16 week series is divided into four programs detailed below.
