Shadow on the Glare
Opening January 2020

In January 2020, Oklahoma Contemporary will open our new downtown location, bringing nationally and internationally acclaimed artists to the heart of Oklahoma City with our inaugural exhibition, Bright Golden Haze, in the main gallery.

The new building will also dedicate a third-floor gallery space to celebrate Oklahoma’s art. Oklahoma Contemporary envisions this gallery as a means to highlight the diversity of Oklahoma’s artistic community and the ways in which Oklahoma artists contribute to the contemporary art world.

The first exhibition in the third-floor gallery will be Shadow on the Glare, a reference from Plainview: I, a poem by Oklahoma Centennial State Poet Laureate N. Scott Momaday. Shadow on the Glare will feature photo and video works that critically respond to Bright Golden Haze’s themes of light and place — in this case, focusing particularly on the landscapes of Oklahoma. In conjunction with the inaugural exhibition in the main gallery, Shadow on the Glare showcases the resonance between our local artists and their globally recognized peers.
