For 10 seasons, Untitled has embraced experimentation and collaboration, and this year, we’re upping the ante. We’ve handed over the reins to amazing guest creatives who will design one-of-a-kind experiences and mix up the entire night’s programming by showcasing their work, inviting their friends and co-creating with you, while still providing the same hands-on and engaging atmosphere we all know and love at Untitled.

While we can’t tell you exactly what will happen (where’s the fun in that?!) we can promise you it will be a year unlike any other, with 10 totally different nights of creativity unleashed. Working alongside DAM staff, each group will showcase the museum in a whole new way and introduce you do the art and artists that make our city thrive. Untitled Final Fridays is the place to pick up new creative tricks, be inspired and discover new artists and culture makers, right here in Denver!

  • Opening Reception: Thursday, February 1
  • 5:30pm members preview; 6:30-9pm free public reception
Nathan Abels, Omne Ignotum Pro Magnifico (every unknown thing appears magnificent), 2017

History of the Future by Nathan Abels embeds contemporary technologies and icons into scenes from a perspective of faith, ritual and religion. These works ask the viewer to assume the role of anthropologist - to decipher the significance of the narrative: what is the significance of the natural world and its characters, any spiritual and religious aspects, and ultimately how these correspond with the celestial?

Leon set to re-launch as non-profit arts organization in February with Eriko Tsogo’s Wrong Women: Myths From Sky

February 17 - March 31, 2018

ErikoTsogoEriko Tsogo at Pirate, circa 2013 - photo by Ken Hamel/

Leon eagerly announces the re-launch of its innovative artistic programming within the structure of a 501 (c) (3) arts organization, with an exhibition of Eriko Tsogo’s stunningly beautiful and psychologically disturbing drawings, collages, prints, and monotypes.

Eriko Tsogo is the last of the fast vanishing nomadic Mongol ethnicity. She was born and raised in the heart of the vast steppes and luminous mountains of Mongolia. She grew up in societies of parallel dysfunction between that of Mongolia and Budapest, Hungary during the Socialist regime; an oppressive period when strong cultural censorship and Communist idealism shaped her adolescent mind.

Scheduled events include:
  • Opening Reception w/ music performance by Entrancer - Saturday, February 17th, 2018, 7pm-11pm
  • Artis Talk and Book Signing - Saturday, March 10th, 2018, 2pm-4pm
  • Artist Workshop/Month of Printmaking Studio Tour - Saturday, March 24th, 2018, 10am-4pm
  • Closing Party w/ music by Voight and live Performance Piece - Saturday, March 31st, 2018 7pm-11pm
The opening reception, sponsored by the Mongolian Culture & Heritage Center of Colorado and Bd’s Mongolian Grill, will feature drawings, collages, prints, and monotypes, in which Tsogo seeks to explore the conflicting psycho-spiritual, cultural and disjointed effects/emotional middle space of globalization on marginalized identities, with attention to women’s issues; one who perpetually lives simultaneously in war and peace within two worlds, and more or less a stranger in both.

Eva Bovenzi: Timelines and Chalcedonies

Michael Warren Contemporary

January 16 – March 3, 2018

  • First Friday Art Walks, February 2 & March 2 (6-9pm)
  • Third Friday Art Reception, February 16 (6-8pm)
“Chalcedony #1” by Eva Bovenzi

Michael Warren Contemporary (MWC) is pleased to present “Eva Bovenzi: Timelines and Chalcedonies.” This show will run concurrently with a group exhibit throughout the remaining presentation areas of the gallery.

In 2016, Eva Bovenzi was awarded an NEA fellowship at the Pt. Reyes National Seashore that brought artists and writers together for a residency on the theme of climate change. While there, Bovenzi began thinking about cycles of time: cosmic, geologic, biologic and human. As she collected stones on her hikes along the coast, she realized that they were literal time capsules, revealing both how they were formed and also what had happened to them over time. Bovenzi based the forms of the collages she made at Pt. Reyes on stones and imbedded each with a horizontal “timeline” which is a reference to her own mark in the cycles of time. Works from 2017, called “Chalcedonies”, are also on exhibition. Although not specifically referencing Pt. Reyes National Seashore, they are also based on the shapes and structures of stones.

Eva Bovenzi lives and works in El Cerrito and spends her summers in southern Colorado. Bovenzi achieved her MFA at California College of the Arts and has exhibited extensively in California, Colorado and throughout the Western United States.

18th Annual Aurora Public Schools Art Educators’ Exhibit

Downtown Aurora Visual Arts

January 25 - March 16, 2018

TaylorPeterson GenesisTaylor Peterson - Genesis

The exhibit features the professional artworks of Aurora Public Schools art educators. Some art teachers were inspired by the 2018 DAVA’s theme, crossovers between art and science of this year. The exhibit, coordinated by Deborah Nolasco, art teacher at Boston K-8, gives the opportunity to teachers to get together around their personal artwork and interests.

Making art on their own time allows teachers to be better teachers in the classroom, always inventing and researching new processes and ideas. “Over the years my art making and my teaching became interlinked by the same set of ideas. At this point my role as an artist is a fundamental element of my teaching and of the classroom experience of my students. Now we explore together as fellow artists.”- says Jon Olson, Art Teacher at Montview Elementary. For others, art is also created by a need to escape the daily demands of a teaching job: “Making my own work is my therapy. It allows me to drain all of the nonsense out and solely focus on creating.” Mark Manner, Ceramic Teacher at Aurora Central High School.

Light Lite Coin will occupy a physical space as well as online, and promises to be a unique art experience for all.

Yoshitomo Saito: millionyearseeds

Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center

February 3 - April 29, 2018

  • First Friday Art Party: February 2 from 4:30-7:30pm; from 5:30-6:00 artist Yoshitomo Saito will give a tour of his exhibition
  • Also on display: Takaamanohara, two videos by Japanese artist Chiho Aoshima
Born in Tokyo, Japan but residing in the United States since 1983, Yoshitomo Saito finds inspiration in the minutia of the natural world, drawing out details of the environment surrounding us and elements of everyday experiences that most would miss or take for granted. In 2006, Saito moved to the Rocky Mountain region in search of a new and affordable live/work situation to pursue the lifestyle of a fully engaged independent artist. Utilizing the Italian lost-wax process of bronze casting at his Ironton Studios foundry in the RiNo Art District of Denver, the artist freezes delicate, organic objects in time and assembles them into immersive, meditative, thoughtful and sometimes humorous installations.
