Cortney Stell Featured in Westword

Cortney Lane Stell, executive director and chief curator of Black Cube Nomadic Art Museum was recently interviewed by Westword, a Denver based news publication. Stell discusses a variety of topics from the history of Black Cube to her favorite exhibits. Stell also talks about an upcoming Black Cube exhibit, WE ARE BODIES. The exhibit will be the first to be held in the Black Cube headquarters since the pandemic starting on Friday October 7th.

Ultimately, WE ARE BODIES examines sculpture’s relation to social experience through an interplay between action and reaction.

WE ARE BODIES (The archaeology files), was created by Anuar Maauad, a 2019 Black Cube Artist Fellow. The large-scale works by Maauad were originated in a workshop with Denver residents in March 2022, but this is the first time that this work will be shown in public. The exhibit will feature a selection of sculptural self-portraits created by workshop participants which are made of clay and replicated on a larger scale using 3D-printing.
