Art Omi Fall Opening in the Park

Alicia Kwade, TunnelTeller (2018). Stainless steel, concrete, natural stone (Macaubas azul)

Celebrate Art Omi’s  Fall Opening in the Park on September 11. With opening receptions for To Feel Myself Beloved on the Earth, by Jeffrey Gibson, and TunnelTeller, by Alicja Kwade, now on view in the Sculpture & Architecture Park. The opening features a performance by Black Belt Eagle Scout at 5 pm. 

To Feel Myself Beloved on the Earth is an exhibition of quilts, garments, drums, prints, and video by Jeffrey Gibson. A Choctaw-Cherokee artist, Gibson best known for his abstract painting, sculpture and prints which carry an autobiographical cultural inflection. 

Based in Berlin, Alicja Kwade (b.1979, Poland) has long been engaged with value systems, philosophical questions about the essence of reality, and with attempting to examine, if not resolve, issues of inherently subjective concepts such as space and time. In her sculptures, installations, photographs, and films, Kwade probes the structural properties of everyday objects and the veracity of matter.
