Opening of Group Exhibition The Spectacular of Vernacular
The Spectacular of Vernacular addresses the role of vernacular forms in the work of 26 artists who utilize craft, incorporate folklore and revel in roadside kitsch to explore the role of culturally specific iconography in the increasingly global world of art. Through selections that capture varied practices, the exhibition reflects artists' equal fascination with rustic as well as urban vernacular, lending the installation a visually diverse and dynamic character.
A member's preview from 6 - 7 p.m. will host Darsie Alexander, chief curator at the Walker Art Center. From 7 - 9 p.m., the event will be open to the public. The Spectacular of Vernacular will be on display through Sept. 18.
