The UNLV Marjorie Barrick Museum of Artinvites you to experience In Process: Every Movement Counts, a brand-new work and a museum-wide setup by Los Angeles-based artist Andrew Schoultz at the UNLV Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art from June 2 to Sept. 15, 2018.
Merging museum space with the vibrant energy of streets and skateparks, Schoultz makes art that asks concerns about the truth of contemporary life and worldwide power. His installations and murals juxtapose concepts from lit up manuscripts, ancient cartography, and the flattened area of Persian minis. Images of beasts, bricks, trees, and eyes surge across the walls, bringing various elements of the artist’s mark-making vocabulary into play as he charts a battle in between visual clearness and complex fact. The exhibition is curated by Andres Guerrero.
An opening reception will be held at the Barrick Museum 5-8 p.m. Saturday, June 2. Parking is totally free in trainee, staff, and metered areas.
