Join us in welcoming our 2022 summer exhibitions with an opening artists reception and refreshments in our courtyard.
Reggie Burrows Hodges | Hawkeye premieres a series of paintings by the artist in his first major mid-career solo museum exhibition. For Hodges, the gaze of a Hawkeye camera during a tennis match is the catalyst for these paintings which grapple with the personal and conceptual aspects of memory, linking together family portraits, referees and the Hawkeye tennis lin-calling system.
Veronica Perez | voices, whispering will premiere a new body of sculptures made from braided and woven artificial hair, a material that Perez has been deeply invested in for the past three years. The artist’s intricately detailed works act as monuments to feelings of love, loss, and grief and are symbols for exploring the forgotten and stolen histories of the Latinx diaspora.
Yashua Klos | Our Living will premiere the first text-based work by the New York-based artist Yashua Klos. In Our Living, a working collective of hands hold letter forms that are being overgrown with sprawling vines and wildflowers. The work was conceived to be a public announcement of Black resilience and prosperity being nurtured through communal action. In this sense, Klos ties woodblock printing into its history as a medium for grass roots political messaging.
The View from Here features new and recent works by over a dozen artists (including two collaboratives) who have previously exhibited or otherwise been involved at CMCA during our history (1952-2022). The celebratory exhibition will coincide with CMCA’s 70th anniversary, and the unifying concept will be works that examine a sense of place. Artists include: Katherine Bradford, Ann Craven, Lois Dodd, Linden Frederick, Tessa Green O’Brien, Alison Hildreth, Alex Katz, Wade Kavenaugh & Stephen Nguyen, John Moore, Aaron Stephan, tectonic industries, Joyce Tenneson, and Nicole Wittenberg, among others.
