One weekend only! June 7-9 at Squirrel Haus Arts: 3450 Snelling Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55406
• Opening reception: June 7, 5-10pm •
Grilled cheese by All Square • Beer by Surly Brewing Company • DJ set by Preston Drum • Bar proceeds benefit We Are All Criminals, who will be doing on-site interviews as part of their ongoing project about privilege, dignity, and criminal justice.
On view will be a series of large-scale colored pencil drawings and sculptural installations using tangled masses of bodies and objects to reflect on the tensions and anxieties around issues ranging from police brutality and plastic pollution to mental health and body politics. White’s obsessively detailed drawings are an exploration of contemporary life in all its complexity: they are at once funny and somber, personal and political, comically bright and darkly serious.
Gallery hours: June 8, 12-5pm
Artist talk: June 9, 1-4pm
Russ White is a fiscal year 2018 recipient of an Artist Initiative grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
