CINCINNATI— The Cincinnati Art Museum is celebrating its newest special exhibition Future Retrieval: Close Parallel with an “at home” version of Art After Dark on Friday, March 26 from 7–9 p.m. Follow the museum on Facebook or YouTube to join the fun.

Guests will enjoy a series of exclusive video premieres, including a cocktail tutorial from Homemakers Bar, local music from Wavelette, a 360° view of the gallery space, and a behind-the-scenes interview with exhibition artists Katie Parker and Guy Michael Davis. Learn about their unique creative process and see works in progress from the exhibition.

Special exhibition Future Retrieval: Close Parallel allows the new and unexpected to delight in dialogue with the historic.

The contemporary work of Future Retrieval (the name of the studio collaboration of Parker and Davis, both former UC DAAP faculty members) commingles with selections from the museum’s permanent collection. Traditional motifs are reinterpreted. The natural world creeps in, to fascinating effect, and familiar materials are reworked into surprising new forms.

The exhibition will be on view at the museum through August 29 and is generously supported by HORAN. Advanced online registration is required to view the exhibition in person.

The museum continues to connect with visitors virtually through CAM Connect, a robust Facebook Group that provides unique content including artwork features, videos, guided art-making activities, a virtual book club, and more. In addition, thousands of works of art from the museum’s permanent collection can be viewed online on CAM’s website and through Google Arts & Culture.
