On view through - November 2020

This Saturday (July 18) Art Omi reopens the Newmark Gallery with an exhibition of photo collage and video art by American painter and mixed media artist, Howardena Pindell. Pindell’s extensive body of work addresses political themes, including racism, physical trauma, memory, and the human experience. Click here for full details!

A timed entry system will permit gallery visitation from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday through Sunday every week. Visitors will be able to register for a half-hour slot in advance via Evenbrite, or upon arrival to the Sculpture & Architecture Park if space is available at that time. No more than eight visitors will be allowed in the gallery at once, and all visitors will be required to wear masks during their visit.

New exhibitions in the Sculpture & Architecture Park

Art Omi is pleased to welcome new work in the Sculpture & Architecture Park, with more being installed by the day. The full exhibition season features Sculpture by Bianca Beck, Dan Colen, Chemi Rosado-Seijo, Anna Sew Hoy, Will Ryman, and Agustina Woodgate; Art Omi: Architecture presents new pavilions by Steven Holl, Wendy Evans Joseph, and Cameron Wu.

Take a peak at some of our newest exhibitions below. If your’e planning to visit the park and want to know where to find the new work, download the latest version of the map here.

Obolin celebrates the scientific and psychological effects of light and space. The sculpture was named by Holl’s four-year-old daughter Io Helene, who, when asked what Obolin means, replied: “it means anything you want it to mean.”

In this work, the artist’s first large scale outdoor work, she considered the expansion of the individual in relation to collectivity, creativity, and partnership. This work evokes a single colossal figure, as though the human scale has been psychically amplified by its potential, love, pride, and power to connect.

An exposed system of pipes connect, like a puzzle, four sections, each containing multiple fountains. Each faucet is attached to one pipe that draws in clean water and another that releases excess water to the local sewer system. Like many of Woodgate’s works, The Source exposes an underlying political and social structure, repositioning existing elements to put alternate arrangements into motion.
