Museum-Wide Opening Reception @ Utah Museum of Contemporary Art

Museum-Wide Opening Reception @ Utah Museum of Contemporary Art |  |  |

Come explore our newest exhibitions in the Main, Codec, A-I-R and Ed. Space galleries at UMOCA on Friday, August 25 from 7 – 9 p.m. A cash bar and light refreshments will be available as you stroll through “Cities of Conviction,” Al Ahad’s “The Hijab Project,” Jason Manley’s “Shrinking Room” and Jaime Salvador Castillo and Michael Anthony García’s “whereABOUTS.” Performances will occur throughout the evening.

“Cities of Conviction” in the Main and Codec galleries explores the connection between Salt Lake City and Saudi Arabia in relation to natural resources, pilgrimage and tension surrounding commercial development around cultural heritage sites. This is an unprecedented exhibition in the state of Utah, featuring contemporary Saudi Arabian artists. In connection with “Cities of Conviction,” Saudi Arabian artist Balqis Al Rashed will participate in a six-week residency at UMOCA. UMOCA’s first international Artist-in-Residence, Al Rashed focuses on the creation of meanings, practices and dichotomies in respect to the collective, identity and the self. Al Rashed will also be hosting workshops at UMOCA that correlate with her work.

Artist-in-Residence Jason Manley’s installation “Shrinking Room” will be on display in the A-I-R Space. Manley’s drawings, sculptures and public artworks examine the effects of language on the physical design of things and places.

Local organization Al Ahad (Always Love Against Hate And Discrimination) works to change public perceptions of Islam. Al Ahad hopes to counter the widespread disinformation about the hijab and dispel stereotypes surrounding women who wear the hijab. Thus they created “The Hijab Project,” which invited local Muslim women to create their own headscarves. View their unique artworks in the Ed. Space.

“whereABOUTS” is an interactive and immersive exhibition designed by Jaime Salvador Castillo and Michael Anthony García for the UMOCA Art Truck. After traveling to schools and communities around the state collecting art maps investigating the relationship between location, identity and community, the culminating installation by Castillo and García will be on display in UMOCA’s Ed. Space.
