A private opening reception for Museum members, donors, and exhibiting artists for two new exhibitions will be held on Thursday, October 10, from 6 to 8 pm. The exhibitions will open to the public on October 11 and remain on view through April 19, 2020.
- FROM FORT TO PORT & BEYOND: An Architectural History of Mobile – This exhibition, organized by the Mobile Museum of Art with guest curator and architectural historian, Cartledge Blackwell III, explores the architectural history of our extraordinary community—one of the twenty oldest continuously inhabited cities in the United States. Presented through a selective timeline of photographs, models, architectural plans, maps, elevations, building materials, videotaped interviews and tours, and publications—the exhibition documents the changing social and cultural story of its places and people over a period of centuries, spanning Mobile’s unique and long history.
- New work from Key-Sook Geum, on loan from Callan Contemporary, New Orleans – Key-Sook Geum creates immaculate sculptural objects, dually inspired by traditional Korean garment forms and the lineage of haute couture. Time intensive and meticulous in execution, at once delicate and dramatic, these conceptual sculptures embody spiritual and humanistic ideals that resonate across cultures. With silk gauze, faceted beads, crystals, coral, and semiprecious stones interwoven with red, black, and silver wire, Geum integrates Eastern and Western notions of positive and negative space.
