Curator-Led Tour of ‘Carrie Moyer and Sheila Pepe: Tabernacles for Trying Times’ at the Museum of Arts and Design

The AFA was pleased to provide this after-hours, curator-led tour of Carrie Moyer and Sheila Pepe: Tabernacles for Trying Times at the Museum of Arts and Design with Alida Jekabson, Curatorial Assistant and Elissa Auther, Deputy Director of Curatorial Affairs and William and Mildred Lasdon Chief Curator. 

The first major museum survey of painter Carrie Moyer and sculptor Sheila Pepe, whose abstract works, rich with color and materiality, explore themes of craft, feminism, and queer activism. Highlighting the artists’ individual styles and techniques, collaborative works, and new directions, the exhibition presents their most ambitious collaboration to date. The impressively scaled Parlor for the People is a site-specific installation that reimagines the religious tradition of the tabernacle as a communal space open to all for the discussion of justice, equality, knowledge, and these “trying times.”
