Opening Reception: Tandem Press & Anwar Floyd-Pruitt

August 19, 2021

5:00pm

The Gallery,

MOWA | DTN

Join us in person at Saint Kate - The Arts Hotel for an Opening Reception to celebrate our new exhibitions featuring Tandem Press and Anwar Floyd-Pruitt!

Guest Curators J Myszka Lewis and Sona Pastel-Daneshgar from Madison-based printmaking studio and gallery Tandem Press will be present to discuss their selection of collaboratively curated works on display in The Gallery and The Vitrine for the exhibitions Judy Pfaff: The End of Rain and Swoon: Tender. These two solo shows featuring internationally-acclaimed artists harness the two-and three-dimensional potential of printmaking: between Judy Pfaff's many-layered prints composed of multiple printing and hand-applied techniques, and Swoon's intimate portraits of women, each body of work resonates with quiet power. The exhibitions emphasize the printmaking practices of two typically installation-oriented artists.

In Anwar Floyd-Pruitt's solo exhibition Retina Records on view in MOWA | DTN, the artist invents a new visual language capable of evoking the experience of time travel. Densely layered spray painted works yield a kaleidoscopic installation that is equally inspired by the aesthetic sensibilities of the 1990s as well as by an imagined Afro-futurist tomorrow.

We will serve a specialty complimentary cocktail during the reception!
