ACME Lab | MIRROR / MASK @ Utah Museum of Fine Arts
Aug 15 @ 5:00 pm
ACME Lab | MIRROR / MASK @ Utah Museum of Fine Arts |  |  |

MIRROR / MASK is a project by New York City-based artist Marisa Morán Jahn (Studio REV-) whose work uses mirrored masks to explore how we see ourselves reflected—or distorted—in others. It delves into ideas of identity, presentation, and self-reflection through an immersive exhibition in the ACME Lab as well as works juxtaposed with UMFA objects in the permanent galleries. Jahn cites her interest in Asian, African, and Greek rituals and dramaturgy masks as influences for the artwork. She is also interested in examining Western modes of self-presentation in an era of ubiquitous digital screens and mirrors.

Jahn’s interventions of sculpture, performance, photography, moving GIFs, and video into the museum’s permanent collections of European portraiture, Egyptian funerary objects, and African works raises questions about how we present ourselves (whether in painting or selfies) and imagine the other.

Of Chinese and Ecuadorian descent, Jahn is an artist; a faculty member in MIT’s Art, Culture, and Technology program; and the founder of Studio REV-, a nonprofit organization whose public art projects and creative media impact the lives of low-wage workers, immigrants, women, and youth.

Jahn’s work in MIRROR / MASK is supported by Creative Capital.

Located in the Emma Eccles Jones Education Center, ACME Lab is an exhibition space for art experimentation and exploration. Visitors of all ages are encouraged to ask questions, make connections across disciplines, and engage with art in new ways.

Unique Stories of the Yellowstone Wolf Reintroduction @ Patagonia Outlet
Sep 20 @ 7:00 pm
Unique Stories of the Yellowstone Wolf Reintroduction @ Patagonia Outlet |  |  |

Our guest presenter for the Wasatch Packtivists meeting is Lynn Weston, a naturalist with extensive experience teaching at the Yellowstone Institute beginning in 2000. Lynn will present “Unique Stories of the Yellowstone Wolf Reintroduction.” The return of wolves to Yellowstone is clearly one of the most dramatic events in ecological history, but there are many personal, unique and unknown stories during that time that are truly captivating and exciting. Prepare for some surprises as we explore these stories surrounding the reintroduction and issues regarding the Crystal Creek acclamation pen during 1995. Lynn is currently working with an YF Institute class entitled “Wolves: Mythology and Reality.” Lynn became involved in the wolf Environmental Impact Statement in 1994 and was one of the first to assist the researchers and biologists in wolf location, pack behavior, and wolf dynamics in 1996. When not in Yellowstone, Lynn volunteers at the Ogden Nature Center assisting with school programs in field ecology and recently developed a docent program. Free and open to the public.
