Gilcrease and TAF collaborate on new contemporary exhibit
Gilcrease Museum is showcasing “Recall/Respond,” the first of a two-part collaborative exhibition with Tulsa Artist Fellowship.
Performer Karl Jones’ “Oklahoma Puppets” are displayed in the “Recall/Respond” exhibition at Gilcrease Museum.
Until Oct. 13, Gilcrease Museum is showcasing “Recall/Respond,” the first of a two-part collaborative exhibition with Tulsa Artist Fellowship. The contemporary works on display provide a sensory journey with bright colors, provocative messages and intriguing sounds that all come together to portray what makes a diverse and ever-changing Oklahoma.
The exhibition includes Tulsa artist Dan Farnum’s “Unearthed Bricks,” a series of three photographs depicting historic Greenwood amid transformation, and Jessica Harvey’s “Well,” an oratory feature playing the sound of an oil pumpjack.
The immersive displays create an environment for people of all ages to learn and think about experiences outside of their own, according to Carolyn Sickles, TAF executive director.
“Think about the way artists are engaging within our political world and reflecting what is within our culture,” Sickles says. “There’s an intimacy to experiencing contemporary art. This is our time, and these people are talking about the world we’re living in, and you are not exempt from the process.”
Visit Gilcrease, 1400 N. Gilcrease Museum Road, on Aug. 29 for free admission and access to activities focused on the works and creators in “Recall/Respond.” The first phase of the exhibit will remain on view through Oct. 13. Its second rotation opens Nov. 15.
