TIME CAPSULE

#CMAtimecapsule

 

If you could choose one object to represent your 2021 vibe,

what would it be? As part of Laura Owens: Rerun, the artist

and her Currently Under Curation teen collaborators at the

Cleveland Museum of Art are creating a time capsule that

will be stored at the museum until it is opened in 2031, and

they need your help choosing what to include in it.

 

Take a picture of an object, artwork, keepsake, or anything else

that represents what 2021 means to you and post it using the

hashtag #CMAtimecapsule for submissions on social media.

All the posts will be archived to include in the time capsule,

and 100 objects will be selected to place in the time capsule.

 

For more details, including prizes and examples of

submissions, visit cma.org.

 

 

 

Laura Owens: Rerun
The Cleveland Museum of Art at Transformer Station, Cleveland27 February – 30 May 2021
Opening: Saturday 27 February 2021

Opening this weekend, Laura Owens: Rerun is an ambitious new project presented with the Cleveland Museum of Art at Transformer Station.

Celebrated for a wide-ranging and experimental approach to painting that embraces a breadth of sources, Laura Owens returns to her native Northeast Ohio for her first exhibition in the region, Laura Owens: Rerun. Organized by the Cleveland Museum of Art, Laura Owens: Rerun is a collaboration with high school students participating in the CMA’s Arts Mastery program, Currently Under Curation (CUC). The exhibition features new and existing works by the artist that Currently Under Curation teens have selected to explore the theme of time travel.

Currently based in Los Angeles, Owens grew up in Norwalk, Ohio, and spent many hours as a teenager studying the Cleveland Museum of Art’s encyclopedic collection. From the earliest days of planning this exhibition, Owens knew she wanted to work with local teenagers as a way to connect her own past and present and to develop a show rooted in Cleveland. Students from the CMA program involved in the exhibition are Jamal Carter, Xyhair Davis, Skylar Fleming, Yomi Gonzalez, Joseph Hlavac, Agatha Mathoslah, Arica McKinney, Maya Peroune, and Deonta Steele.

In Transformer Station’s main gallery, time travel is animated through well known works by Owens that span her career. They are shown alongside the artist’s own art from high school, presented publicly for the first time. The Crane Gallery features a new site-specific installation of Owens’ unique handmade wallpaper. Laura Owens: Rerun also presents objects from the CMA’s Education Art Collection, which includes more than 10,000 pieces from many different eras and regions of the world and was created to be shared with Cleveland area schools for educational purposes.

Editions in Solidarity

Over the past two months Printed Matter has donated 100% of select edition sales to National Lawyers Guild, The Okra Project, and Take Back The Bronx; three organizations continuing to support mutual aid efforts within local communities in the ongoing movement to protect Black lives.

We are dedicated to sustaining our participation in the uprising against systemic racism and police brutality, and social and economic injustice. A total of $9450 has been donated through the sales of editions by Farah Al Qasimi, Laylah Ali, Matt Connors, Jibade-Khalil Huffman, Caitlin Keogh, Eileen Quilan, and Cauleen Smith. We thank these artists for their contribution toward Printed Matter—and for allowing us to pay it forward.

Help us reach our $15k goal in contributing to the movement! 100% of the proceeds from the sales of the following editions, will be donated to The Black School, Housing Justice For All, and The Sylvia Rivera Law Project until we reach our target.
