Dual Opening Reception: FRI, JUN 27 | 7 - 9 PM 
Join us for a celebration to commence UMOCA's two newest exhibitions. Bring your friends and experience today's art and mingle with the artists. Refreshments and a cash bar will be available. 

Bikuben, (Danish for "the hive") was inspired by the research for this exhibition. Between 1876 and 1935, Bikuben was a newspaper published in Utah for the Danish immigrants as a way to foster cultural connectivity and a sense of community. For this exhibition, the word bikuben is reimagined as a way to examine how the symbolism of a beehive is interwoven with concepts of industry, heritage, and utopia. 

A rtist Q&A   JUN 27 | 6 PM 
On the 27th, come early for a Q&A with renowned Danish contemporary artist Mie Olise hosted by UMOCA's Curator, Rebecca Maksym. Olise's installation piece Shipsearching (2011) is featured above.  


Christopher Kelly: GOD COMPLEX 
Christopher Kelly's GOD COMPLEX references science fiction to expand on the universal human desire to develop and control an alternative place. A genre often associated with futuristic pursuits of new worlds and extraterrestrial life, sci-fi is also an apt metaphor for the discovery of the differences between self and other, human and alien.
