Friday, September 30  |  12:00-5:00pm  |  2900 West Berry Street
Fort Worth Contemporary Arts (2900 West Berry Street) was established as a satellite space in 2008 to offer a platform for innovative contemporary art from an international context. Its regular changing exhibition program reflects significant developments in art and often features artists’ work that has never been shown in Texas before or is being made on-site during a residency period. During Family Weekend, Fort Worth Contemporary Arts will feature WAKE, an exhibition featuring new work by Ian Weaver.

Ian Weaver’s artistic practice is interdisciplinary in nature and he uses a variety of media including drawing, collage, assemblage, sculpture, photography and film to explore memory and consider how individuals and communities construct their own identities. While his research and approach is centered within a personal and familial investigation of Chicago’s African American community, his work speaks to wider ideas of commemoration and the imagining and fashioning of objects used to create archives.
