After over two years of adventurous programming in the unrenovated raw warehouse at 1601 South Ervay, The MAC will open our new exhibition space, on–campus at 1503 South Ervay St. The 2,500 sq.ft. facility is located at the corner of S. Ervay and Sullivan, next door to Ro2 Art.
We open with two timely and important inaugural exhibitions: Working Groups by Carolyn Sortor and Michael A. Morris in the north gallery; and a group show, Independence, with Helen Altman, Alicia Eggert, Letitia Huckaby, Liss LaFleur, and Leslie Martinez in the south gallery. The opening reception for both shows will be held on January 12 from 6-10 p.m., and run through February 23.
Working Groups celebrates The MAC’s permanent installation of books and other materials assembled as part of the OccuLibrary project. The new exhibition contextualizes these materials and reviews some of the accomplishments of the Occupy movement and its offshoots, seeking “empowering info” and inspiration for next steps in both art and “reality.”
Independence is a group exhibition bringing together Texas-based artists Helen Altman, Alicia Eggert, Letitia Huckaby, Liss LaFleur, and Leslie Martinez. Artists explore the overarching concept of time and the self in relation to society. Works in the exhibition reflect on issues of our times: identity, social dominance, ecological impact, and consumerism.
Come celebrate the new chapter in the 24-year history of The MAC and support your local artists!
