Location:  Gartner Auditorium

About The Event

Join Emily Liebert, curator of contemporary art, to learn more about Julie Mehretu: Portals, on view in the Julia and Larry Pollock Focus Gallery from July 16 through November 13. This exhibition, the first of its kind at the CMA, integrates paintings by Julie Mehretu with works from the museum’s permanent collection that Mehretu has selected and curated within the gallery. Spanning a range of cultures, histories, and mediums, the works she has chosen reflect images and ideas that inspire her own artistic practice and process. Members will also hear about Yoshitomo Nara: Recent Work, on view in Toby’s Gallery for Contemporary Art from July 16 through October 2.

Nadiah Rivera Fellah, associate curator of contemporary art, will discuss a new commission by Dominican-American artist Firelei Báez. The commission is on view in the Betty T. and David M. Schneider Gallery of European Sculpture from July 16, 2022, through January 15, 2023. 

Following the presentation, members are invited to view the exhibitions in the galleries, where the curators will be available for questions.

Asian Art Society, Column & Stripe, Contemporary Art Society, and Friends of African and African American Art members will receive a digital invitation. Members of these affinity groups can also RSVP to memberprograms@clevelandart.org.
