NTI Traveling Exhibition Meaning Is Always Here

Reno, NV– The City of Reno presents the NTI-Traveling Exhibition, Meaning is always here. I started the curation of Meaning is Always Here by trying to imagine a persona the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art might present to Nevadans that live far away and cannot reach us. We at the Museum think we have a good sense of who we are, but how do others perceive us? We shift. Our exhibitions change. Therefore, this exhibition should show that change with artists from different backgrounds and media. The works should reference the real world and represent a transformation through the artists’ decisions, so that we can see where they’re coming from.
Meaning is always here…I think about the artworks that couldn’t be included in this traveling show for reasons of size or fragility. That artwork awaits you here, at the Barrick Museum of Art. Visit us and see.
Exhibition artists include: Alexander Calder, Candice Lin, Chase R. McCurdy, Kim Rugg, Krystal Ramirez, Lucio Pozzi, Marshall Scheuttle, Mary Cady Johnson, Mikayla Whitmore, Stephen Antonakos, Tomoko Daido.
The Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art is pleased to loan this artwork from our permanent collection to the Nevada Arts Council. Our goal is to help broaden the Museum’s message that everyone deserves access to art that challenges our understanding of the present and inspires us to create a future that holds space for us all.
