Opening Reception: Sung Tieu and Lex Brown
Join the MIT List Visual Arts Center for the opening reception to celebrate two new exhibitions at the List Center, “Sung Tieu: Civic Floor” and “Lex Brown: Carnelian.”
Exhibiting artists and exhibition curators will be in attendance. Light refreshments will be served.
“Sung Tieu: Civic Floor”
With “Civic Floor,” the MIT List Visual Arts Center will present the US debut of a new body of work by German-Vietnamese artist Sung Tieu. Tieu employs sculpture, drawing, sound, video, and installation to examine a wide range of subjects in which social or political power is articulated through sensory and psychological realms. Perception is a key node in Tieu’s work as she elaborates the often alienating effects of sound, architecture, design, and language. Working across various media, Tieu crafts a spatial narrative in each of her exhibitions that reflects her research into bureaucratic systems and their affective spaces as well as her lived experience with them.
“Lex Brown: Carnelian”
The MIT List Visual Arts Center will present the first museum solo exhibition of Philadelphia-based artist Lex Brown. Spanning video, sculpture, drawing, writing, performance, and the podcast “1-800-POWERS,” Lex Brown’s incisive artworks confront pressing social conditions of our time, from gentrification and greenwashing to police violence, but do so through an irreverent and sometimes jarring use of humor.
