NEWS: Aaron Moulton to Depart Utah Museum of Contemporary Art in July

Salt Lake City, UT – Senior Curator Aaron Moulton will be moving on from his position at the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art (UMOCA) to pursue further opportunities in the field. Moulton’s work to create awareness as well as exporting a context for Utahn contemporary art has been at the forefront of his practice. During his time at the institution he conceived and executed twenty original exhibitions that have further made the museum a recognized leader in the industry both nationally and internationally. He has also put local, national and international artists in dialogue together which has offered a visual network and helped visibility of local artists such as Adam Bateman, Jason Metcalf and Amy Jorgensen.

Regarding this upcoming change, Interim Director, Maggie Willis says, “Aaron has been one of the driving forces behind UMOCA’s success in the international art scene, and he has also been a huge supporter of our local artist population by including them in exhibitions alongside international contemporary superstars. His ability to form partnerships with local organizations has been extremely important in developing a stronger art community; we hope to continue these relationships long into the future.  We wish Aaron the best in his future endeavors, and will miss him dearly.  We were very fortunate to have been able to work alongside such a creative and clever individual.” 

During his tenure at UMOCA, Moulton curated important exhibitions including “Battleground States” which referenced the space beyond gender duality. The exhibition included several generations of artists whose work addresses LGBT politics, sexuality and aesthetics such as Jack Smith, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, AA Bronson, Heather Cassils, Carlos Motta, and others alongside the likes of Matthew Barney, Shirin Neshat and Absalon. The recent exhibition “Analogital” explored the transitional space between analogue and digital including today’s premiere generation of artists concerned with the topic including Oliver Laric, Cory Arcangel, Jordon Wolfson, and Jennifer West. In his book Beyond New Media Art, art historian Domenico Quaranta referred to the exhibition as a step forward in how museums tactically address the evolutions occurring in new media art. Other highlights from Moulton’s programming include the first museum exhibitions of artists like Alex Israel and Ana Prvacki as well as the US museum premiere of Christian Jankowski’s Casting Jesus.
Reflecting on his time at UMOCA, Moulton states, “I have appreciated the enormous opportunities this organization has offered. My time here has been incredibly productive. Utah and the museum will forever hold a special place in the work I do.”
While UMOCA transitions to a new Senior Curator of Exhibitions, Assistant Curator Rebecca Maksym will carry out future programming set in motion by Moulton. “Becca has been an incredible colleague and sounding board in my work here” says Moulton. “Her interests in contemporary art were synchronized with my own and we both have an affinity for problem-solving issues of content and display. I feel very confident in her ability to continue the work we’re doing here.”
Currently featured in the Main Gallery at UMOCA is the inaugural Utah Biennial entitled “Mondo Utah,” which establishes a tradition that will continuously update Utah’s regional languages of art-making. The first edition encyclopedically delves into the nature of folklore as a material for cultural production whilst highlighting the touchstones that are intrinsically rooted in Utah. The biennial is a homecoming for lost mythologies within the art history here ranging from Chris Burden to radical architect Gianni Pettena as well as presenting an early project by Utah’s own estranged but world famous contemporary artist Paul McCarthy.
Upcoming exhibitions for 2014 include a survey of cult filmmaker Trent Harris and a large-scale group exhibition looking at Danish migration in Utah.

The award-winning Utah Museum of Contemporary Art exhibits groundbreaking artwork by local, national, and international artists. Four gallery spaces provide an opportunity for the community to explore the contemporary cultural landscape through UMOCA’s exhibitions, films, events, classes, and presentations.

Founded in 1931, the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art has been recognized as Best Museum in the State of Utah for 2011, 2012 and 2013 and is a four-time recipient of funding from the Andy Warhol Foundation.

Audiences are then invited to enjoy bluegrass from the green grass in the next concert with Steve Martin & Steep Canyon Rangers featuring Edie Brickell.

The Friday, July 19, 2013 performance at Deer Valley® Snow Park Outdoor Amphitheater begins at 7:30 p.m. The performance is sold out.

The final performance of the week will feature folk-rock stars Indigo Girls performing their classic hits with the Utah Symphony on Saturday, July 20, 2013 at 7:30 p.m. at Deer Valley® Snow Park Outdoor Amphitheater. The Indigo Girls will perform the music from the folk duo’s over 25 year career.

Guest Artists
Keith Lockhart currently serves as Conductor of the Boston Pops and Artistic Director and Principal Conductor of the summer institute and festival at the Brevard Music Center. He recently completed his highly successful 11-year tenure as Music Director of the Utah Symphony where his leadership of the symphony allowed him to stand at the front of that organization’s historical merger with the Utah Opera to create the first-ever joint administrative arts entity of the Utah Symphony and Opera. Since the merger, arts institutions nationally and internationally have looked to Maestro Lockhart as an example of an innovative thinker on and off the podium. Lockhart has conducted the Symphony Orchestras of Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Minnesota, Montreal, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Baltimore, Atlanta, St. Louis, Nashville, North Carolina, Indianapolis, Singapore, Toronto and Vancouver as well as the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, and the National Arts Centre Orchestra.

At 16 years old, violinist Simone Porter has been recognized by national and international critics as an emerging artist of impassioned energy, musical integrity and vibrant sound. Porter made her professional solo debut at age 10 with the Seattle Symphony and her London debut with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra at 13. Nationally, Porter has been heard on the renowned syndicated NPR radio program “From the Top,” featuring America’s best young classical musicians and hosted by acclaimed pianist Christopher O’Riley. Porter also made her Carnegie Hall debut on the Emmy Award-winning TV show “From the Top: Live from Carnegie Hall.” Other TV appearances include the BBC Documentary “The World’s Greatest Musical Prodigies,” which aired in the UK in June 2009. She has been featured on Seattle’s Kiro 7 TV’s Quarterly Magazine “In Color,” and in August 2011, she was selected as the only Aspen Music Festival student to be featured on the popular national APM radio program “Performance Today,” recorded live at Aspen’s Harris Hall.

Steve Martin
 is currently in the fifth decade of a uniquely varied and accomplished career in which he’s excelled as a comedian, author and playwright, and as a Grammy-winning, boundary-pushing bluegrass banjoist and composer in addition to being a talented actor in films like “Father of the Bride” and “Planes, Trains and Automobiles.” This spring, Rounder Records will release Martin’s third full-length album called “Love Has Come for You.” The album is a unique collaboration with songwriter Edie Brickell and is set for release on April 23. The remarkable new album offers 13 eloquently rootsy compositions that combine Martin’s inventive five-string banjo work with Brickell’s distinctive vocals and vivid, detail-rich lyrics. “Love Has Come for You” is a substantial departure, as well as a creative milestone, for both artists.

In 1985, Edie Brickell began her music career when she joined local folk rock group New Bohemians as their lead singer. The newly christened Edie Brickell & New Bohemians promptly signed a recording contract and released the multiplatinum selling “Shooting Rubberbands at the Stars” in 1988, as well as the 1990 follow-up, “Ghost of a Dog.” Brickell has had a prolific solo career where she has release three albums, and, most recently, she has collaborated with Steve Martin on their album “Love Has Come for You.”

The rootsy, artful, bluegrass band, Steep Canyon Rangers, consists of Charles R. Humphrey III, Nicky Sanders, Mike Guggino, Graham Sharp and Woody Platt. In the past year, the band has taken its work to the next level in their collaboration with Steve Martin. In 2012 the band with the addition of Steve Martin, released “Rare Bird Alert,” which was nominated for Best Bluegrass Album at the Grammy Awards. The band went on to release another album in 2013 entitled “Nobody Knows You,” which won the Grammy for the same award as the previous year.

Decades into their career, the Indigo Girls still amaze conventional pundits with their ability to grow and thrive no matter the state of the music industry at any given point. Emily Saliers and Amy Ray began performing together in high school in small venues and saw their public profile take off with the 1989 release of their self-titled breakthrough, an album that included the first hit, “Closer To Fine,” and went on to win Best Contemporary Folk Recording at the 1990 Grammys. In their most recent album, “Beauty Queen Sister,” they deliver a beautifully crafted bath of songs that revel in spirited simplicity. Ray has a thriving solo career in which she has released four studio albums. The other half of the Indigo Girls, Saliers, is an author in conjunction with being an accomplished musician. Saliers wrote a book with her father, Don Saliers, a professor at Emory University, called “A Song to Sing, a Life to Live: Reflections on Music as Spiritual Practice.”
