Aftereffect: Georgia O’Keeffe and Contemporary Painting <p>Aftereffect: Georgia O'Keeffe and Contemporary Painting brings together a select group of artists whose work resonates with that of Georgia O'Keeffe. From her formal innovations, to her ambition to transcribe her ideas and emotions, to her distinctive approach to abstraction and the landscape of New Mexico, O'Keeffe's legacy is identifiable in the work of several generations of painters. These artists share her interest in capturing what Jerry Saltz refers to as the "objective and subjective all at once." That is, in their art, the physical world is neither subjected to, nor victorious over the imagination of the artist, but rather, the two are continuously at play.</p> 1485 Delgany St. Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Amanda Wachob: Tattoo This <p>Vanguard tattoo artist Amanda Wachob uses a tattoo machine and ink to create art on canvas, paper, silk, fruit, and leather, in addition to human bodies. Inspired largely by modern painting, in 2008, she pioneered a unique tattoo style incorporating brushstrokes, washes, paint splatters and spills, commonly referred to as "watercolor technique." During that time, she has also been using the tattoo machines and ink to push the boundaries of her field and make works for gallery walls. Wachob not only advances tattooing as an autonomous art form but also brings the medium into closer dialogue with the wider domain of art.</p> <p>Born in Buffalo, Amanda Wachob studied photography at State University of New York, at Purchase. Among numerous gallery exhibitions, she has shown her work at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York and the New York Historical Society, and done projects with the New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. In 2015, Ad Age recognized her as one of the 50 "Most Creative People of the Year." She lives and works in Brooklyn.</p> 1485 Delgany St. Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Andrew Jensdotter: Flak <p>MCA Denver is excited to announce Andrew Jensdotter: Flak, which will open in the museum's Whole Room Gallery on February 14, 2019. This marks the artist's first solo museum exhibition.</p> <p>Since completing his MFA at the University of Colorado, Boulder in 2014, Jensdotter has honed a process that synthesizes abstraction and figuration: over a period of months, he paints layers of representational imagery, each layer successively obscuring the others, then meticulously cuts into the built-up surface to create a variegated field of color. It is his singular process that defines these "carved paintings."</p> <p>In addition to several of these carved works, Flak features a group of new paintings that further Jensdotter's experimentation with figuration and abstraction and additive and subtractive methods. He makes these new works by building up layers of paint via a repetitive transfer technique, using large sheets of inexpensive plastic and canvas. The results of the new process are jagged, violent, and emotional abstractions that contrast the painstakingly composed, pseudo-organic carved works.</p> 1485 Delgany St. Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Between Us: The Blind Date <p>One actor. One audience member. Where will you take the story and where will the story take you?</p> <p>A stranger is waiting to meet you. They're wandering around a museum, or serving you at a restaurant, or waiting for the bus. Instead of letting them pass through your periphery like so many others, this is your chance to connect. To have a conversation. To discover the secrets that each of us keep and the humanity we forget to recognize.</p> <p>Between Us is a set of three truly unique one-on-one experiences with just you and an actor, created by some of the country's leading immersive theatre artists. Head to a downtown Denver destination to share each other's company and connect in a very real way. Over the course of an hour, you'll inspire the twists and turns your encounter will take, and by the simple act of being yourself, your rendezvous will be unlike any other. Don't miss the once-in-a-lifetime chance to look a story in the face and become a part of it yourself.</p> <p>You've been set up on a blind date to wander through the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver. Skip the small talk and dive into the big questions of creation, destruction, and the way we expose our true selves through the strange ritual of dating. Museum admission included.</p> 1485 Delgany St. Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center
