The MAC presents H Schenck: Mud Is Mud Opening Reception
The MAC will be presenting the final exhibition in the New Urban Landscape series, Mud Campaign, by Dallas-based artist H Schenck, in partnership with Youth First Resource Center Dallas. The Mud Campaign is a social and artistic project that bridges Dallas' LGBTQ youth and Dallas' art communities using a web presence and exhibition that will take place throughout the months of August and September. Beginning with a social media takeover in August and culminating in an exhibition, Mud Is Mud, the Mud Campaign addresses issues surrounding LGBTQ youth: homelessness, abandonment, alienation, and reclaiming identity and self.
Mud Is Mud is an artistic collaboration between the artist and LGBTQ youth from Youth First Resource Center Dallas. He worked with individuals at Youth First to create artworks and prompt discussion about human inclusivity. Schenck uses mud both physically as a material and conceptually as a vehicle to acknowledge social labels and redefine them.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through October 8.
