The UNLV Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art, Las Vegas, will present "Preservation," a group exhibition that explores aspects of preservation–of land, legacies, histories, and the biological. The project will be on view at the Barrick Museum and Grant Hall Gallery from September 29, 2017 through January 20, 2018, in conjunction with the Museum’s 50th Anniversary and the University's 60th Anniversary.
The exhibition includes international contemporary artists Adam Bateman, Laurie Brown, Moritz Fehr, Cayetano Ferrer, Ian James, Candice Lin, Brigid McCaffrey with Elizabeth Knafo, Ocean Earth, Marina Pinsky, Gala Porras-Kim, and Max Hooper Schneider, and is curated by Aurora Tang.
"Colosseum," a stereoscopic 3D film and sound installation by Mortiz Fehr, uses image and sound to transport the viewer to a former open pit gold and copper mine. This installation will be on view in Grant Hall Gallery from 9/29/2017 - 10/26/2017, and will screen Monday - Friday (10am - 4pm), Saturday (1pm - 4pm), and by appointment.
This project is funded in part by a grant from the Nevada Arts Council, a state agency, and the National Endowment of the Arts, a federal agency.
