Distance to Venus by Rebecca Ward – Opening Celebration
SITE Santa Fe is pleased to present a new solo SITElab exhibition by Rebecca Ward, entitled distance to venus, from September 1 through November 5, 2022. This exhibition showcases Ward’s ground-breaking work at the intersection of painting and sculpture through a selection of recent work (2021-2022) tracing the transformative phases of pregnancy and childbirth through the language of geometry, materiality, and abstraction.
Drawing from the artist’s experience as a queer person experiencing motherhood, the body of work explores the relationship between the archetype of the female goddess, the changing human body, landscape, mathematics, and celestial phenomena.
The exhibition coincides with the release of a monograph entitled before & after, which includes a conversation with SITE Santa Fe curator Brandee Caoba.
SITElab 17: distance to venus opens Thursday, September 1, from 5:00-9:00 PM, with a local musical performance, cocktails by Altar Spirits, and food from Jambo Hapa.
SITElab 17: distance to venus is curated by Brandee Caoba.
