Since its founding in 1931, the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art has been committed to exhibiting innovative and challenging work. Exhibitions are spread across six gallery spaces and include group shows with a curated theme, individual presentations of video, audio or tech-based work as well as large-scale installations. Its exhibition program juxtaposes local artists and ideas with national and international ones to forge a richer understanding of the intersection between local and global issues. To further deepen this understanding and to maintain an ongoing conversation with the public about the provocative ideas the art presents, the museum also maintains a busy program of educational components, community outreach projects and professional development opportunities for artists in Utah.
