Museum Uncrated: Abstract Art & the Sonic Contours of Expression

April 11, 2024, 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm
Listed In: Talks and Screenings

Join members of Plains Art Museum’s Curatorial Department for opportunities to explore and investigate museums and some of their behind-the-scene aspects. From increasing general knowledge about collections processes, exhibition development from a curatorial perspective, interpretive strategies regarding artwork and exhibitions, and knowledge about certain artists and their works, Museum Uncrated promises insightful and significant takeaways for attendees.

Exploring abstract art can be really exciting and fulfilling, but it’s also super challenging and sometimes confusing. Some people think abstract art doesn’t have a clear story or meaning, but that’s not always true. Abstract art can actually make you feel all sorts of different emotions and see things in new ways. It’s a bit like how different types of music can really grab your attention and make you feel something special. So, what happens when abstract art and sound mix together? Ricky Pallay and Kelvin Monroe will be checking that out during Museum Uncrated, looking at symbols and ideas that push the limits of what we think art can do.

Generous support for Museum Uncrated is provided by Art Bridges.
