Dominic Guarnaschelli: Incognitum

Dominic Guarnaschelli: Incognitum

CINCINNATI, OH—On Friday, February 1, from 6 to 8 p.m., the Cincinnati Arts Association’s Alice F. and Harris K. Weston Art Gallery in the Aronoff Center for the Arts opens three exhibitions: Thoughts Made Visceral, a group exhibition comprised of text-based works curated by C. M. Turner; Dominic Guarnaschelli: Incognitum, a solo exhibition presenting an evocative environment that recalls a museum, yet whose subject remains out of reach; and Migiwa Orimo: Proximity of Syllables, a solo exhibition that examines language and communication as illusive entities. (See separate press releases for the concurrent Thoughts Made Visceral and Migiwa Orimo: Proximity of Syllables exhibitions.)

Dominic Guarnaschelli’s (Louisville, KY) evocative installation Incognitum draws inspiration from the fields of natural history, religion, education, and museological display. Guarnaschelli will physically transform the Weston’s lower west gallery through an array of sculptural and image-based work inspired by museum display and design.
