Alicja Bielawska: Reference Points for Potential Constellations
If the work on display in Cydonia Gallery this week seems familiar but you just can't quite put your finger on it, you're engaging with what the artist considers the "limits of the past," or exactly how our perception is tied to to memory. Bielawska is interested in the uncannily familiar, the things you recognize but don't remember. She creates hard linear forms, softened with textiles and modeled clay. See the work, which has an air of mystery about it, in an opening reception from 6-8 p.m. Friday or during normal gallery hours through October 31. More at cydoniagallery.com.
FUTURE: Tour the Mac
If you're already missing that bright blue building in Uptown, don't worry, it's still there. But if it's what used to be inside that you're missing, aka The McKinney Avenue Contemporary museum, and if you're wondering when, or even if, it will reopen in its new space in The Cedars, then you'll want to tour the new space this weekend. Learn all the exciting things they have cooking up and meet the new director, Rachel Rogerson. Tours will be held from noon until 5 p.m. Saturday.
