The UNLV Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art presents Plural: Meet the Artists an evening of conversation with Las Vegas artists whose work appears in the Barrick’s current group exhibition, Plural. The event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
What does it mean to make art in Las Vegas today? As our multi-voiced Plural exhibition comes to an end we invite the artists to talk to us about the ideas that inform their work and how that affects everything from the materials they use to the conversations they want to provoke.
Attendees are invited to join the Barrick Museum’s director, staff, and curators, as Linda Alterwitz, Diane Bush, Gig Depio, Andreana Donahue, Justin Favela, Nancy Good, Brent Holmes, Bobbie Ann Howell, Wendy Kveck, Krystal Ramirez, JK Russ, Aaron Sheppard, Lance Smith, and Mikayla Whitmore lead us through their practices in the gallery with the art they created.
Plural features recently donated artworks from the UNLV Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art’s permanent collection that explore complex aspects of human identity through a range of traditional and unconventional media. Memory, passion, voice, excess, race, gender, and intersectionality are all brought into question as we search for ways in which a museum collection can reflect our own multifaceted understanding of who we are. Through Saturday, May 12, 2018.
The Barrick Museum is located on the main campus of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. A map with directions to the building and parking information can be viewed online at here. For further details, phone 702-895-3381 or email email@example.com.
