Henry Art Gallery is set to unveil four new exhibitions this fall, and you’re invited to the opening. Head to the museum on Friday, Sept. 29 from 7-9 p.m. to meet the artists, enjoy drinks and live music + see the art:
- Raúl de Nieves: “A window to the see, a spirit star chiming in the wind of wonder…” features “stained glass” installations that transform the museum’s largest gallery space into a gorgeous container of colored light.
- “Encounters” by Kelly Akashi, an artist known for her sculptures and installations that transform the way materials are used and perceived.
- “Not My Bag” by Sophia Al-Maria, a site-specific installation created for the Henry which synthesizes film production, photography, and various reference texts to interrogate colonialism.
- “A/Political Rocks,” an exhibition drawn from the Henry’s collection that explores the role landscape photography has played in shaping experiences of the American West.
The event is free and open to the public, but RSVPs are encouraged. RSVP to an evening of art.
