Join artist Carter Mull (who brought the Marciano museum to life for us) for the show that has critics raving from coast to coast.
Maria Maiolino is at last receiving her first retrospective in the United States and it's a show that merits an in-depth visit. The NY Times describes the show as requiring "urgent viewing" for all art lovers. Maiolino was born in Southern Italy, whose family attempted to escape the hardships of postwar Europe by relocating to South America - first Venezuela and then Brazil. As a young artist, Maiolino used photography, collage, and video to express her anxieties under the repressive military regime. Later in a democratic Brazil, she made equally powerful and poignant drawings and works in clay and plaster which explore themes of hunger, nourishment, and the burdens of immigration, loss and yearning. The work is expressive and poignant and, with Carter as our guide, will surely resonate long after your visit to the museum. As with Marciano's collection, Carter will bring his breadth of art historical knowledge and understanding of contemporary art to Maiolino's remarkable oeuvre, making it accessible to even the novice art viewer.
