Our top five picks for arts and culture events in the southwest.
Dallas Museum of Art / Dallas
On view through July 25
A rare exhibition dedicated to Juan Gris, this collection highlights the artist’s pioneering and revolutionary contributions to the Cubist movement. For those not in Dallas, the museum will host a lecture on April 22 exploring Gris’s art and its continuing relevance as one of the most challenging modern visions of what painting can be.
Colorado Photographic Arts Center / Denver
Sunday, April 25, 2-4 pm
In celebration of “worldwide pinhole photography day” (who knew!) experimental photographer and pinhole enthusiast Ashlae Shepler will teach students to build and use a pinhole viewfinder made out of materials found around the house, and use it with any camera on hand.
ASU Art Museum / Tempe
On view through May 21
This exhibition combines all aspects of artist Liz Cohen’s Bodywork series, in which she transformed two cars into a lowrider while simultaneously transforming her own body to become a bikini model for her car at lowrider shows. The project examines her in-betweenness as a first-generation Latina and a child of the Cold War.
Modern West / Salt Lake City
On view through May 7
Works by Fidas Buehler center around changes in social interactions as a result of predominant life forces. Buehler’s awareness of the familial pod is intensified by the pandemic and into his artistic practice. Neatly divided human clusters shelter from an ongoing storm; frenetic reactions multiply.
Harwood Art Center / Albuquerque
On view April 26-June 3, 2021
Harwood Art Center presents two exhibitions. Until the Mud Settles by Katherine Hunt examines the duality between order and ubiquitous chance. Catastrophic Molt by Madelin Coit is an installation of light, polycarbonate, paper, and mesh, embodying the transformation that occurs when we replace old ideas with new ones. Tune in for virtual artist talks on May 13.
