Upcoming exhibition: David Hamlow: Mirror Stage

Opening reception: Thursday, May 25, 7 p.m.
Members-only preview: Thursday, May 25, 5:30 p.m.
Minnesota Museum of American Art

David Hamlow’s Mirror Stage is a massive installation that includes paintings, found-object sculptures, and geodesic structures made of upcycled paper and plastics donated by residents of the Pioneer Endicott building. This is an ongoing body of work drawing on the artist’s knowledge of psychoanalysis and theories of self-awareness, which scrutinizes our collective impact on the environment by illustrating the massive amounts of waste we produce each day.

In conjunction with the Twin Cities’ annual all-night arts festival, Northern Spark 2017 (June 10 – 11), the M will offer interactive, public art-making around this site-specific project.

For this exhibition, members of the M are invited to an exclusive preview on opening night, with artist David Hamlow and curator Christopher Atkins. Complimentary drinks and refreshments will be served. A public opening reception will follow, which is free and open to everyone.

David Hamlow: Mirror Stage will be on view May 25 – July 30, 2017. The exhibition and all related programs are free and open to the public.
