Bemis Center For Contemporary Arts

Upcoming Events

ARTalk + Exhibition Opening Reception

Thursday, June 1, 2017 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Description: David Brooks: Continuous Service Altered Daily makes visible every part–electrical wiring, nuts, bolts, rubber hoses, tires–of a 1976 John Deere 3300 series combine harvester throughout Bemis Center’s first floor galleries. The countless pieces, some faded and weather-worn or aspiring to high-art status with powder-coated or brass plated finishes, are carefully organized into nine ecosystem zones that perpetually exist in our biosphere, asking viewers to reexamine their perceptions of products or “services” harvested from the natural world.

5–6:30 PM
MEMBERS PREVIEW RECEPTION + EXHIBITION TOUR

Members are invited to a private preview and exhibition tour with artist David Brooks and exhibition curator Amy Smith-Stewart, The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum.

6:30–9 PM
ARTALK + PUBLIC OPENING RECEPTION

Immediately following the Members Preview, the public opening reception begins with an ARTalk with artist David Brooks and Brandon Schlautman, Lead Scientist at The Land Institute. Free and open to the public, free parking available.
