Opening Reception: The Interview: Red, Red Future says
Celebrate the opening of "THE INTERVIEW: Red, Red Future," a solo exhibition by the artist MPA that includes photography, sculpture, and performance, all commissioned for this presentation.

MPA has developed a series of exploratory topics—which she calls “landings”—drawn from the cultural imaginary surrounding the red planet. Consider, for example, the colonial implications of establishing communities on the planet that astrologers link to war and revolution, or why extraterrestrial encounters suggested in ancient mythologies are routinely dismissed as impossible. Visitors will encounter UV-sensitive sculpture in which aerial views of the Nasca Lines in Peru are alternately concealed and revealed by exposure to ultraviolet light in CAMH’s Zilkha Gallery. Combining advanced technology and Minimalist aesthetics, MPA’s work seeks to shed light on invisible forces and power.

Admission to this event is free and open to the public; cash bar on-site.
