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.
Fusing museum space with the dynamic energy of streets and skateparks, Schoultz makes art that asks questions about the reality of modern life and global power. His installations and murals juxtapose ideas from lit up manuscripts, ancient cartography, and the flattened area of Persian minis. Pictures of beasts, bricks, trees, and eyes rise throughout the walls, bringing various components of the artist’s mark-making vocabulary into play as he charts a battle between visual clarity and complex fact. The exhibit is curated by Andres Guerrero.
An opening reception will be held at the Barrick Museum 5-7 p.m. Saturday, June 2. Parking is free in student, staff, and metered areas.
About the Artist
A graduate of the Academy of Art University, San Francisco, multimedia artist Schoultz has held solo exhibits in museums and galleries throughout the United States and Europe. His public murals show up on walls in Manila, Philippines, and Jogjakarta, Indonesia, as well as on skate parks, an aircraft, and a Tesla. Schoultz’s work is kept in the collections of numerous organizations, consisting of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Los Angeles Contemporary Art Museum, the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego, and the Honolulu Art Museum. His latest skatepark redesign took place here in Las Vegas, where he painted the Clark County Winchester Cultural Center Skate Park in partnership with Clark County and the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art. The Barrick Museum and Winchester Cultural Center hope this partnership will bring satisfaction to skaters, families, and visitors for years to come.
“For over 20 years, Los Angeles-based artist Andrew Schoultz has created an expansive world through which the audience loses oneself. Schoultz has always had a deep connection and participation within the neighborhoods he’s worked, whether it’s through murals or public involvement. Schoultz’s exhibit with the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art in Las Vegas is no various, whether it’s the artist’s change of the Winchester Cultural Center Neighborhood Skatepark or participatory components within his museum show, Schoultz’s worlds are built upon inclusive areas through which we can explore our cumulative creativity,” stated Andres Guerrero, manager of In Process: Every Motion Counts.
Throughout the course of Andrew Schoultz: In Process: Every Motion Counts, the Barrick will provide 2 complimentary neighborhood art days 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on June 22 and Aug. 3 with innovative activities and live efficiencies for all ages.
