Mickalene Thomas at Giverny
A solo exhibition of works by Mickalene Thomas titled Mickalene Thomas at Giverny will be on view at the Telfair Museum of Art's Jepson Center in Savannah, GA from September 11, 2015 - January 3, 2016.
On view from September 26, 2015 - January 31, 2016, the North Carolina Museum of Art will present two films by South African artist Robin Rhode: Piano Chair and Zig Zag (both 2011). In Rhode’s gravity-defying videos—staged in locations that include city streets, his studio, and his family’s backyard—actors interact with chalk and charcoal drawings of everyday objects (chairs, pianos, bicycles, basketballs, skateboards) as if they were real. His dynamic narratives set up a dialogue between high art and popular culture, incorporating references to graffiti, art history, and recent political and social events.
