Sightings: Mai-Thu Perret
Join us on opening weekend for a conversation with Swiss-born exhibition artist Mai-Thu Perret, who has spent the past 16 years making work born from a fictional feminist art commune she created called The Crystal Frontier. Set in New Mexico, the imaginary women of the commune make work that runs the visual gamut, from the painterly to the sculptural. More on the exhibition here
For Sightings, Perret will build on this project, installing recent ceramics and paintings, along with a new body of work that relates her interest in utopian societies to the recent development of a secular Kurdish community in the Syrian region of Rojava.
“I don’t think utopian ideas are bound to fail, but quite likely when they become real or succeed they stop being called utopias.” – Mai-Thu Perret
