Spring Exhibition Opening Celebration

Artists’ Talk | 5:30 PM
Reception | 6–8:30 PM

Fri, May 19, 2017 4 PM

Celebrate our spring exhibition, Gray Matters, at this festive, free event featuring Covert Histories, a discussion with Bethany Collins, Xaviera Simmons, and Carmen Winant. The three Gray Matters artists address the often-overlooked histories—or gray areas—buried within our shared cultural narratives. The artists’ talk takes place in the Film/Video Theater at 5:30 PM; stay afterward for complimentary snacks, a cash bar, and DJ Trueskillz in the lower lobby from 6 to 8:30 PM. The galleries open at 4 PM.

Gray Matters is a multifaceted survey of 37 contemporary women artists working in the surprisingly vibrant space between—and including—black and white. The exhibition is the first organized by Michael Goodson since he assumed the role of Senior Curator of Exhibitions at the Wex, and the survey enriches a calendar year of programming in which every artist featured in our galleries is a woman.
