Circles Exclusive Exhibition Preview—Valeska Soares: Any Moment Now
6pm | Remarks
Phoenix Art Museum invites Circles of Support members to join Amada Cruz, Sybil Harrington Director and CEO, for a preview of Valeska Soares: Any Moment Now. Enjoy hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, live entertainment, and a special performance of Soares' interactive, edible sculpture Push Pull along with remarks from Vanessa Davidson, The Shawn and Joe Lampe Curator of Latin American Art.
Valeska Soares: Any Moment Now is a mid-career survey exhibition of Soares' (b.1957) work, the first at a U.S. museum since 2003. The exhibition features approximately 45 multi-media works, sculptures, videos, and installations created by the Brazilian artist during the past two decades.
Soares creates polished, minimalistic artworks that encourage visitor participation. Through installation and assemblage, she engages with international art traditions and world literature. In her multifaceted art, she demonstrates a fascination with space and time, as well as what occurs beyond their perceived limits. Her works directly engage visitors’ subjectivities, cultivating both personal experience and universal knowledge and how each of these affects the other.
Be the first to experience this project that represents a landmark partnership with the Santa Barbara Museum of Art as part of the Getty Foundation’s 2017 Pacific Standard Time: Los Angeles/Latin America initiative.
Space is limited. RSVP by Thursday, March 15, 2018 to 602-257-2115 or firstname.lastname@example.org
