Opening Celebration: Rebecca Ward: distance to venus
SITE Santa Fe opens Rebecca Ward: distance to venus with food from Jambo, drinks from Altar Spirits, and music by Ailani!
On view through Sun, Nov 6, 2022
Employing banded, sewn, and deconstructed canvases, Brooklyn-based artist Rebecca Ward’s work explores the line between painting and sculpture. Emphasizing materiality and process by unraveling and reassembling canvas to expose underlying stretcher bars, the selection of recent works in distance to venus traces the transformative phases of pregnancy and childbirth as a queer person experiencing motherhood.
Ailani is an 18-year-old singer-songwriter with multiple releases. Ailani’s music has a heartfelt indie pop-rock feel. She has found that making music is her most meaningful way of self-expression.
