Join us at the Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History for refreshments, mingling, and viewing the exhibit Strange Weather, which brings together works by influential artists from the 20th and 21st century that creatively illuminate and reframe the boundaries of bodies and the environment.
Strange Weather: From the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation features contemporary art works which illuminate and reframe the boundaries of bodies and the environment. The artworks included in the exhibition span five decades, from 1970-2020, and are drawn together for how they creatively call attention to the impact and history of forced migrations, industrialization, global capitalism, and trauma on humans and the contemporary landscape.
Concurrent with Strange Weather, a capsule exhibition of the works of Glenn Ligon from the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation will be on view at the Mary Porter Sesnon Art Gallery at UC Santa Cruz.
Artists Include: Carlos Almarez, Carlos Amorales, Leonardo Drew, Joe Feddersen, Hock E Aye Vi Edgar Heap of Birds, James Lavadour, Glenn Ligon, Nicola Lopez, James Luna, Hung Liu, Julie Mehretu, Wendy Red Star, Alison Saar, Lorna Simpson, Kiki Smith, Charles Wilbert White, Kehinde Wiley, Terry Winters.
