Relational Forms: Robert Bliss & Anna Campbell Bliss @ CUAC
Jul 10 all-day
Relational Forms: Robert Bliss & Anna Campbell Bliss @ CUAC | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Exhibition Dates: May 15 – July 11
Opening Reception: May 15, 7-9pm
CUAC Hours: Tues – Fri 11am-6pm, Sat 12-4pm

Relational Forms highlights select furniture pieces designed by architect, Robert Bliss presented with intricate, two-dimensional artwork by Anna Campbell Bliss. The Bliss’ moved to Salt Lake City, Utah in 1963 and have been influential figures in the art and design communities throughout the country. Robert Bliss was educated at Black Mountain College and MIT. He had a successful career as an architect in Minnesota before moving to Salt Lake City where he worked at the University of Utah as head of the Department of Architecture and later as Dean of the Graduate School of Architecture. Robert’s concern for architectural education, city planning, and preserving the environment continues to this day as he participates in local and national committees dedicated to historic building preservation and maintaining the constructed heritage of local communities. Robert’s furniture reflects modern designs emphasizing practicality without compromising a minimalist style.

Anna Campbell Bliss earned degrees from Wellesley College and Harvard studying math, art history, and architecture. Her paintings and prints displayed in this exhibition show a bridge of connection between these subjects and the more contemporary influence of computer science. Her precise screen-prints show her fascination with the complex relationships of color, geometry, pattern, and repetition.

Relational Forms is a traveling exhibition organized by the Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art at Utah State University and adapted for CUAC.

Justin Carruth: Depart @ Broadway Center Cinemas
Jul 12 all-day
Justin Carruth: Depart @ Broadway Center Cinemas | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

CUAC@SLFS
In an exciting new partnership, the Salt Lake Film Society is dedicating a large portion of the Broadway Centre Cinemas lobby for the exhibition of contemporary art curated by CUAC.

Exploring the range of meaning of “to depart,” Justin Carruth’s paintings are a vibrant yet dark collection of portraits and memento mori. With a complex word that conveys both a person’s leaving and someone’s passing, Carruth acknowledges the complexities within his own experience and memory and his singular interpretation of meaning. He concedes that an environment or situation inevitably evolves after our observation of it, leaving our capacity to relate to another’s experiences necessarily incomplete.

Undergo, with its push and pull between visual clarity and incoherency, mimics the emotionally saturated experience of losing somebody, and is an intentionally confusing and unsettling exploration of death, transition, and human interaction. The accompanying works echo these themes, but with a narrowed focus, isolating figures and objects that contemplate time and memory blurred with elements of fiction.

The works in Depart also represent a departure in Carruth’s creative process. In the past, Carruth frequently painted from photographs, and this particular kind of reference point largely directed the look and feel of his paintings. Deliberately wanting to change how he chose to “see,” his new works explore what transpires when the reference is altered. In this new body of work, his subjects are often further obscured or removed from the viewer through perspective and process. Seen from afar or from the side, or through multiple layers of rendition (each one further from the “truth” of the original subject), Carruth creates evocative images that resist our desire to see and to comprehend.

Carruth began drawing early in his life and over time has embraced diverse media. At the core of his practice, however, is a love of painting and the highly emotional response it can produce in the viewer. Carruth’s works have been featured in solo and group shows throughout Utah and nationally.

This is CUAC’s second exhibition at the Broadway Centre Cinemas. CUAC and the Salt Lake Film Society are teaming up to present a new model for presenting contemporary art to a wide audience by dedicating a large portion of the Broadway Centre Cinemas lobby for the exhibition of art curated by CUAC. This exciting partnership emphasizes the dedication SLFS has to presenting art-based film in our state and allows CUAC’s compelling exhibitions of contemporary art to reach a growing audience.
