Three additional not-to-be-missed exhibitions at UMOCA:
Johnathan Horowtiz's Your Land/My Land: Election '12, now through Nov. 24. Back-to-back monitors broadcast live feeds from MSNBC and Fox News, creating a cacophony of views and news. UMOCA joins esteemed art institutions around the country to showcase this reflection of America's cultural and political divide over the 2012 presidential election.
Jason Metcalf's ABRACADABRA, now through Dec. 21. Curious about superstition? This one's for you. Legends and lore from cultures both near and far are identified in objects such as "Drive a rusty nail through a lime to avoid the evil eye", "It is a sign of great wealth to have bubbles in your tea", "When a mirror breaks use only one piece to view yourself", and more.
Battleground States, now through Jan. 5. Artists including Tobias Bernstrup, Trishelle Jeffrey, Annie Leibovitz, Carlos Motta, Trevor Southey, and more explore ideas of how figuration, the body, and identity intertwine through video, sculpture, installation, and photography.
Save the date for First Fridays (Of the Siren and the Sky will open Dec. 7), and make a happy habit of returning often. UMOCA is a hip, metropolitan experience in downtown SLC!
