Curator-led Tour with Sylvie Fortin

Location: Bemis Center | 724 S. 12th Street
Description: Join Bemis Center’s Curator-in-Residence Sylvie Fortin for a lively and informative tour of Richard Ibghy and Marilou Lemmens: Look, it's daybreak, dear, time to sing. The artist duo's new sculptures and videos highlight the ties that bind humans with birds, adopting a more-than-human viewpoint to reveal sites of mutual hope and friction. Stretching into the distant past while drawing us into possible futures, this exhibition invites us to expand our capacity to imagine and build shared worlds for generations of avians, humans, and a host of other members of our planetary family. This is a unique opportunity to discuss the contexts and overarching theme of the exhibition and gain insight into the curatorial process.

Free and open to all.

Richard Ibghy and Marilou Lemmens: Look, it’s daybreak, dear, time to sing is sponsored, in part, by Douglas County, Nebraska; Nebraska Arts Council and Nebraska Cultural Endowment; Omaha Steaks; and Security National Bank.

Presented in partnership with the Consulate General of Canada in Minneapolis and the Québec Government Office in Chicago.

The Curator-in-Residence program is supported, in part, by Ester and Dan Brabec and Carol Gendler.

Richard Ibghy and Marilou Lemmens thank the Canada Council for the Arts and the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec for their financial support.
