Seasonal Special Happenings

Double Whammy

When: Fri., June 27 2014

Tonight marks the opening of two new shows for summer at the Museum of Contemporary Art. Someday is Now: The Art of Corita Kent and Hans Op de Beeck: Staging Silence (2) both launch tonight, and there will be talks related to the two shows as well as a family art studio geared towards kids 10 and under. Local hip-hop outfit Replife will provide the tunes. Someday is Now takes you through a fascinating display of Kent’s iconic retro images and questions political and sometimes religious ideologies of the ’60s and ’70s. Meanwhile, Staging Silence features a unique look at Op de Beeck’s latest black and white film, Staging Silence (2), with a set of dioramas that challenge your sense of perspective and the function of everyday objects. The shows are markedly different, yet the vivid colors and imagery of Kent’s work play nicely off the black-and-white dreaminess of Op de Beeck’s opus. Everything starts at 7 p.m. tonight and admission is free. (Trenholme)
