EXHIBIT OPENING: CONFLUENCES: INTERGENERATIONAL COLLABORATIONS
Opens Saturday, Feb. 6; on display through Sunday, April 17, 2016
The exhibition will showcase work created during the exhibit from eight pairs of American Indian artists from the greater Southwest. Each pair consists of one established “mentor” artist (age 39 or younger) and one emerging artist, ages 16 to 20. The pairs of artists will collaborate on a co-created work or series of works. Media include textile or fiber arts, film, metalsmith, ceramic, painting and fashion design. These works will be created and completed at the museum over a three-month period. The format for the exhibit will involve both process time done in the artists’ studios and at the museum and will end with an exhibition of the collaborative pieces. The full exhibition will also include individual works created by each artist. In the Lincoln Gallery.
EXHIBIT OPENING: PERSONAL JOURNEYS: AMERICAN INDIAN LANDSCAPES
Opens Saturday, Feb. 27, 2016; on display through Friday, Sept. 30, 2016
Personal Journeys explores the unique relationship American Indians have with land and how that has been expressed in art. Land and landscapes continue to impact the works of many Native artists. The exhibit will also explore the connection to and loss of land—a universal theme for Native peoples. Personal Journeys features works by several artists including George Morrison, Joan Hill and Allan Houser. In the Jacobson Gallery
EXHIBIT CLOSING: FRIDA KAHLO—HER PHOTOS
Monday, Feb. 8
The Heard Museum presents a selection of more than 240 images from the 6,500 which are part of the Blue House archive. The photographs, along with Frida Kahlo’s personal items, were locked in a room of the Blue House, the residence where she spent most of her life, and revealed to the public in 2007. The images in this traveling exhibition served as memories for Frida, as work tools or as a means to exorcise solitude. The exhibition Frida Kahlo-Her Photos, curated by the well-known Mexican photographer and photography historian Pablo Ortiz Monasterio, shows the importance of this medium in Frida’s life. In the Jacobson Gallery. Contributing Sponsors: Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona, SRP and Wells Fargo. Patron Sponsors: Arlene and Giora Ben-Horin with additional support from Bob and Mary Ellen McKee, the Arizona Commission on the Arts and the city of Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture.
All programs included with museum admission unless otherwise noted.
