The title, Bikuben, was inspired by the history that has informed the research for this exhibition. Between 1876 and 1935, Bikuben was a newspaper published in Utah for the Danish immigrants as a way to foster cultural connectivity and a sense of community. For this exhibition, the word bikuben (meaning beehive) is reimagined as a way to highlight the many fascinating ties between Denmark and Utah in terms of ideas regarding progress, industry, and utopia. The exhibit runs June 27-Dec. 20, 2014. There will be a reception June 27, 7-9 p.m. Visit utahmoca.org/portfolio/bikuben for information.
