Soy Un Testigo/ I Am Witness: Contemporary Latino Art
"Soy Un Testigo" is an exhibit of twenty-four contemporary paintings, sculpture, and prints by ten individual artists and one installation group. It provides a rare opportunity for people in Utah to experience original visual works by some of this country's finest contemporary talent. It gives us the opportunity to "hear what the Latino artists are saying. To hear them with our eyes and with our imagination," as distinguished Mexican author Octavio Paz Said of another contemporary Latino art exhibit ten years ago ("Hispanic Art in the United States: 30 Contemporary Painters and Sculptors").
Go West: Promised Land or Exile? - Exhibition Views
Go West brings together twenty contemporary artists who offer up critical reflections on the West as both destination and destiny. These artists engage in an excavation of myths and ideologies embedded in the West, uncovering a range of motivations for westward movement over the years. For so many Americans, the West was thought to be, first and foremost, a place without a past. Go West suggests the ways in which the past always informs the present, and how the West as place of latent possibilities continues to figure in our cultural imagination. Exhibition held in the Main Gallery space.
All American: Defining Ourselves in a Time of Change
As a nation, Americans look continually to our heritage, beliefs, and daily rituals to define ourselves as a culture. Yet our national identity is complex, and it is difficult to characterize a people by any one symbol, ethnicity, or boundary. All American: Defining Ourselves in a Time of Change features 13 contemporary artists whose work evokes a vital dialogue, whether with patriotic pride or cautious skepticism, about the icons and traditions that define us. These artists, working in a variety of media, incorporate history, ideologies and symbolism into their art as a means of exploring what it means to be an American. Exhibition held in the Main and Projects Gallery spaces.
