Event Description

Lynne Cohen: False Clues 
Opening Reception: Wednesday, Jan. 22, 5:00 - 7:00PM
Walkthrough with Francois LeTourneux at 6:00PM

Exhibition open from Jan 22-Mar 9


Since the 1970s, renowned Canadian artist Lynne Cohen has been photographing interior spaces – laboratories, offices, health spas, classrooms, shooting ranges – often wryly humorous, sometimes bleak, with an element of suspense and of uneasiness. Her large-format photographs are devoid of people but not of human presence. Through the seemingly fictional quality of these spaces, the purposes of which are as often as not ill-defined, Cohen creates a cross between documentary photography and artifice, sense and nonsense, the ordinary and dream-like. Her vision is informed by a deep feeling for the mystery in the ordinary, what is on the surface but out of sight.
Lynne Cohen: False Clues was organized by the Musée d'Art Contemporain de Montréal.

Dialogue with a Collection: Kim Carlino 
Reception for the Artist: Thursday, Feb. 27, 5:00 - 7:00PM
Kim Carlino in Discussion with Eva Fierst at 6:00PM

Exhibition open from Jan 22-Mar 9


This exhibition is a part of a series of exhibitions at the University Museum of Contemporary Art in which invited local artists exhibit their own artworks in juxtaposition with pieces they select from the museum's permanent collection, which includes over 3000 contemporary prints, drawings, and photographs. This exhibition offers the rare opportunity to showcase artworks owned by the UMass and a platform for invited local artists to present their work. Kim Carlino is a promising young talent in our community; her blossoming career is getting much deserved public attention.


Kim is an alumna of UMass Amherst receiving a BFA in Fine Arts in 2011.
