Be the first to see Sheila Pepe: Hot Mess Formalism before it opens to the public and meet the artist!
 
For over twenty years, Sheila Pepe has constructed large-scale, ephemeral installations and sculpture made out of domestic and industrial fibrous materials. Hot Mess Formalism explores the artist’s relationship to feminist and craft histories, identity, and traditional forms of display through more than 70 works, including the premiere of a three-story, site-specific work created exclusively for the Museum.
 
Tickets also includes admission to our special fall exhibition Past/Future/Present: Contemporary Brazilian Art from the Museum of Modern Art, São Paulo, and all current exhibitions and special installations on view.
 
Before or after, enjoy cocktails and live music in Cummings Great Hall.
