Excerpts

Works from the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art Collections

Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art, University of Nevada, Las Vegas

Exhibition Dates

March 27 - July 25, 2020

Opening Reception

For everyone's safety and peace of mind, we have decided to postpone our reception on March 27th until further notice. We'll let you know when the event has been rescheduled.

Collections are the backbone of a museum. Objects of both inquiry and enjoyment, they measure our ongoing search for new ways to understand ourselves and our world. Opening on March 27, 2020, Excerpts brings together artworks from all the different collections held at the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art, including the internationally renowned Dorothy and Herbert Vogel Collection and works originally collected by the Las Vegas Art Museum. This is the first time a single major exhibition will feature works from every area of the Barrick in dialogue with one another.

Visitors to Excerpts will see more than thirty-five works by artists who have mapped out independent insights around an extraordinary range of ideas. Some of them are thinking regionally as they look for fresh ways to envision the city of Las Vegas or address the crisis of our local water supply. Others are considering personal and social questions of memory, identity, American patriotism, and self-awareness. The process of art itself becomes a focus of examination, with different artists probing the limits of minimalist mark-making, the uncanny possibilities of edges and corners, and the strange task of depicting ephemeral phenomena with the textured physicality of paint.

Excerpts is a glimpse into the profound potential of public art collections, a curation that aims to provide the city with a context for the art we are making today and the art we will make in the future.

The exhibition will feature paintings, drawings, photography, prints, artists’ books, and sculpture in a variety of media created by artists from Nevada and elsewhere, including China Adams, Deborah Aschheim, Robert Beckmann, Diane Bush & Steve Baskin, Eugenia Butler, Matthew Couper, Claudia DeMonte, Andreana Donahue, Marisol Escobar, Peter Fend, Llyn Foulkes, Noelle Garcia, Julieta Gil, Ramiro Gomez, Daniel Habegger, Kyla Hansen, Brent Holmes, James Hough, Neil Jenney, Katarina Jerinic, Branden Koch, Wendy Kveck, Candice Lin, Kathleen Nathan, Krystal Ramirez, Victoria Reynolds, Harry Roseman, Daniel Samaniego, Javier Sanchez, Fritz Scholder, Andrew Schoultz, Lance L. Smith, Gary Stephan, Lew Thomas, John Torreano, Richard Tuttle, and William Wareham.
