Art Museum exhibits its upcoming schedule

ASPEN ” The Aspen Art Museum has announced its upcoming schedule of exhibitions and events.

Two shows – Like color in pictures, and Tonico Lemos Auad – open with receptions Feb. 15.

Like color in pictures, curated by Art Museum director and chief curator Heidi Zuckerman Jacobson, is an international group exhibit of emerging and established artists exploring aspects of the return of intense, idiosyncratic color to art. The exhibition will be accompanied by an illustrated catalog.

Tonico Lemos Auad features work in unusual media – gold chain necklaces, bananas, carpet lint and crabs – by the Brazilian-born, London-based artist in his first one-person U.S. show. Auad will participate in an artist breakfast Feb. 15 at the museum.

British artist Peter Doig, who designed this year’s Aspen Skiing Company lift ticket, will participate in two special events this month. On Feb. 16 Doig will present a selection of historic ski films at the Sky Hotel’s 39 degrees. On Feb. 18, he will be present at Create Your Own Lift Ticket at the base of Buttermilk Mountain.

Zuckerman Jacobson will host a Lunch with the Director on March 7 at the museum.

This year’s Four Thursday Nights film series, titled Minus, begins April 26 with Kota Ezawa’s “The Simpson Verdict,” to be introduced by the artist. The series continues with additional films on three more consecutive Thursday evenings.

Korean artist Koo Jeong-A will be this year’s distinguished artist in residence, April 23-May 25. Her installation will be featured in the museum’s upper gallery May 29-July 22. Also showing May 29-July 22 will be German artist Nicole Wermers.
