The works in the new Social Space exhibition opening at WSU’s Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art offer various printmaking techniques from four renowned American artists: Mark Bradford, Leonardo Drew, Julie Mehretu and Wangechi Mutu. All of them work in abstract imagery while addressing concrete issues ranging from race to labor to conflict. As you roam the show in the new “Crimson Cube” on WSU’s Pullman campus, you’ll find works created by found objects as well as ornate representations of human migration and violent conflict. Curated from the collection of the museum’s namesake, expect a revealing collection of pieces all created between 2003 and 2018.
Jan. 15-March 16; Tue-Sat from 10 am-4 pm • Free admission • Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art WSU • 1535 NE Wilson Rd., Pullman • museum.wsu.edu • 335-1910
