This pop-up exhibition gives Barrick visitors a chance to see some of the work being studied by Wendy Kveck’s UNLV Art in Context class. Choosing her examples from both the Barrick Collection and the Dorothy and Herbert Vogel Collection held at the museum, Kveck asks her students to consider the increasingly interdisciplinary nature of artists’ practices, and the impact of personal and global influences on contemporary artwork. Art in Context features painting, drawing, photography, and sculpture by Audrey Barcio, Lynda Benglis, Claudia DeMonte, Chris Duncan, Justin Favela, Jenna Gribbon, Clarity Haynes, Danielle Kelly, Javier Sanchez, Nicolas Shake, Laurens Tan, and Mikayla Whitmore.
