OMAHA, Nebraska — On February 8, the Joslyn Art Museum debuted the first of three exhibitions planned for the opening year of the museum’s new exhibition space dedicated to contemporary art.
The 500-square-foot Karen and Doug Riley Contemporary Artists Project Gallery, which features 16-foot ceilings, will present 21st-century art across a range of media including painting, photography, works on paper, sculpture, video and multimedia installations.
The initial exhibition, which runs through May 11, features paintings, drawings and mixed media collages by Iona Rozeal Brown that examine how personal identity is shaped when cultural forces collide.
An exhibition featuring a 61-minute high-definition video made on the streets of New York City over a week in September 2011 by James Nares will run from June 21 to September 21.
The final exhibition, October 18 to January 18, showcases work by Orly Genger, who transforms hand-knotted, painted rope sculptures into otherworldly environments. The exhibition will feature Genger’s most recent work, which includes cast bronze sculptures and a monumental woven sculpture.
