Stephanie Wilde: Harmed is about the greed of the few, and its devastating effects on the many. Through the delicate beauty of her intimately detailed ink, acrylic, and gold leaf paintings, Stephanie Wilde examines past and recent events that have resulted in a crisis of confidence in our corporate leaders and economic system. Depicting the debauchery and excess of those in power, Harmed is about loss: moral, financial, and perhaps most disheartening, loss of faith in the corporate world. Exhibition held in the Street Gallery space.
Resonance and Return: Social Documentary Photography 1935-Present
This exhibition brings together Farm Security Administration photographs of the 1930s, including Walker Evans, Russell Lee and Marion Post Wolcott, with those of contemporary photographers such as Judy Bankhead, Robert Dawson and Brenda Ann Kenneally. The exhibition examines ways in which photographers, then and now, use their cameras as tools for documentation and social change stressing the subject of the work over their artistic style. Exhibition held in the Street Level Gallery space.
The exhibition "Cris Bruch: Dreaming Doing Craving" acts as a seventeen year survey of work by this Seattle-based artists. The exhibition occupies the Salt Lake Art Center's entire exhibition space, with the earlier socially-conscious shopping cart sculptures exhibited in the smaller Street Level Galley and the more recent, exquisitely-crafted sculptures shown in the cavernous Main Gallery. What will be quickly realized upon entering this exhibition is that here is an artist who has a highly expressive social consciousness who also happens to make beautiful objects. Exhibition held in the Street Level Gallery and Main Level Gallery spaces.
