Counterpressures Opening Reception and Gallery Talk

Forum Gallery, Museum of Art Lobby

Free with registration


Join curator Hannah Turpin and exhibiting artists to celebrate the opening of Counterpressures in our Forum Gallery.

This thematic group exhibition addresses the present urgency of global warming. The title, taken from a quotation in Pittsburgh environmentalist Rachel Carson's Silent Spring (1962), identifies the show's specific focus on the fraught relationship between human activity and environmental response. Be the first to see this exhibition, which features new and existing work by ten contemporary, Pittsburgh-based artists: Allison Blair, Paper Buck, Seth Clark, Tara Fay, Christine Holtz, Stephanie Martin, Travis Mitzel, Njaimeh Njie, Su Su, and Ginger Brooks Takahashi.

This reception and in-gallery conversation with the curator is free and open to the public, with a cash bar. The evening will also feature a brand-new performance by artist Tara Fay.
