Tilting the Basin:
Contemporary Art of Nevada

FREE Admission provided by MGM Resorts International.

The Art Museum at Symphony Park (AMSP), the group advancing a future art museum in Las Vegas, and Reno-based Nevada Museum of Art, the state’s only accredited art museum, have partnered to present an exhibition showcasing the most significant contemporary artists living and working across Nevada today. Tilting the Basin: Contemporary Art of Nevada bridges the divide between Northern and Southern Nevada communities, providing a broad overview and deep understanding of the most accomplished work being created by more than thirty artists living and working in the Silver State. The exhibition is co-curated by Nevada Museum of Art Curatorial Director and Curator of Contemporary Art JoAnne Northrup; and Las Vegas-based art advisor Michele C. Quinn, owner of MCQ Fine Art, LLC.

Tilting the Basin: Contemporary Art of Nevada opened to much acclaim in northern Nevada, showcasing the vibrant creative fabric binding the Silver State. On the heels of the wildly successful Ugo Rondinone: Seven Magic Mountains, co-produced by Nevada Museum of Art and Art Production Fund, a dialogue emerged about the future of visual arts across the state. To further develop that conversation, Nevada Museum of Art and members from the Seven Magic Mountains Las Vegas committee envisioned an exhibition that would look inward, and celebrate the serious work being generated by talented artists spanning the Great Basin. Those discussions led Quinn and Northrup to curate Tilting the Basin. Concurrently, The Art Museum at Symphony Park effort was underway in Las Vegas, and AMSP president Katie O’Neill, along with Nevada Museum of Art Executive Director and CEO David Walker, crafted a plan to bring the exhibition to Las Vegas.

David Sanchez Burr on the Art of Maintenance and Decay

David Sanchez Burr on the Art of Maintenance and Decay
Friday October 28, 2016 / 12 – 1 pm
Nevada Museum of Art, Reno Nevada

David Sanchez Burr is a mixed-media artist and assistant professor of media arts and technology at New Mexico Highlands University. Join him in discussion about New Citadel II and his efforts to convey ideas of maintenance, generation and decay of the complex systems and structures that surround us. New Citadel is an ongoing project that presents a view of social, urban and ecological change through time based art and speaks to theories of urbanism, the postindustrial landscape and shelter as a perpetual social struggle. The work allows for the design, construction, and disintegration of a city to reveal and critique the chaotic processes that make our urban landscape.

Support for the Art Bite series comes from Nevada Arts Council and Nevada Humanities.

UAMO FESTIVAL 2016
LIVE BROADCAST

NEW CITADEL BROADCAST
New Citadel is an ongoing project that speaks to theories of urbanism, the post industrial
landscape and property/shelter as a perpetual social struggle. The work allows for
the design, construction, and disintegration of a city to reveal and critique the social and
often chaotic processes that make our urban landscape.
Visitors to New Citadel are simultaneously creators, participants, archivists and collaborators
in a process that puts them in control of New Citadel’s destiny. In this new version we
will use images, the everyday sound, and video of Cairo compiled by Egyptian-American
artist Amanda KM to produce the motivating and driving force of a New Citadel. The citadel
will be broadcasted live to Munich as part of UAMO Fortress.

About UAMO:
UAMO – Urban Art and Media Organisation
The intention of the organisation is to support national and international artists on an interdisciplinary level.
Since the foundation in 2003, the non-profit association has been annually organising a four-day art festival in the city of Munich.
The festival’s theme to which the artists can present their works varies each year.
UAMO considers itself as a platform for artists of all kinds, and thus, since the first festival in 2004 up till now, more than 300 artists from over 20 countries have presented their works.
The festival brings art and culture enthusiasts together with the artists.
The comprehensive supporting programme today includes, besides readings and evening events, also workshops where visitors can become creatively active.
Since 2011, apart from the annual art festival in Munich, the UAMO City Tour also takes place focusing on local artists of the respective cities.
All works shown on site can also be seen at the annual UAMO Art Festival.
