Two exhibitions running from September 7 – December 20, 2018
Matthias Schaller: Das Meisterstück
The large-scale photographs that comprise German artist Matthias Schaller’s Das Meisterstück (The Masterpiece) each document the paint palettes and sometimes brushes of legendary artists—Frida Kahlo, Salvador Dalí, Claude Monet, Natalia Goncharova, Paul Gauguin, Vincent van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, among others.
Justin Favela selected the piñata, a playful symbol of Latinx culture, as a point of departure for his work, which includes sculpture, large-scale installation, and “piñata paintings” that explore his Chicano roots and Latinx diaspora in America. His work is equally informed by Las Vegas’s dual culture: the glitzy play-worlds of the Strip and the less visible but expansive Latin American community in and around the city.
All Berman events are free and open to the public.
