Mark your calendars! Tuesday, May 19 at 7pm the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art will hold its first-ever virtual exhibition opening. UMOCA will host the opening of Provo-based artist Jane Christensen’s exhibition Mapping It Out on Zoom. The museum’s curator, Jared Steffensen, will walk viewers through the exhibition while the artist, Jane Christensen, discusses the processes and concepts that inform the work. The museum is encouraging attendees to order takeout from their favorite local restaurants, such as cookies from Crumbl or a crowler from T.F. Brewing, to recreate an opening-like atmosphere.

Mapping It Out, an exhibition of paintings, photographs, and sculptures, is a deep exploration of process—both of the material and the psychological, both science and illusion. When seen as a whole, the collective body of work is the creation of a literal, psychological, and metaphorical space that is constantly evolving and is an effort to map the unsteady, at times unseen, but deeply felt, continuous shifting territories, self, and place.

A 360° Virtual Tour of the exhibition can be viewed on the UMOCA website at: https://www.utahmoca.org/portfolio/jane-christensen-mapping-it-out/
