Beverly McIver: Full Circle at Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts

Visit Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts (@_smoca) visit the exhibition Full Circle by Beverly McIver. You will see more than 70 works that demonstrate the diversity of the artist’s thematic approach to painting over 25 years.

From early self-portraits in clown makeup to more recent works featuring portraits of others and her own reflections on the COVID-19 pandemic, the exhibition illuminates the arc of McIver’s artistic career while also touching on her personal journey.

Her self-portraits explore expressions of individuality, stereotypes, and ways of masking identity, while portraits of family members provide glimpses of intimate moments, in good times as well as in illness and death.

The exhibition includes McIver’s portraits of other artists and notable figures, recent work resulting from a year in Rome with American Academy’s Rome Prize, and new work in which McIver explores the juxtaposition of color, pattern, and the human figure.

Full Circle also features works that reflect on McIver’s collaborations with artists, as well as her impact on the next generation. A complementary exhibition, In Good Company, includes artists who have mentored McIver, such as Faith Ringgold and Richard Mayhew, as well as those who have studied under her, including Melissa Button, Claudio Dicochea, Michael Dixon, Carrie Hott, Mary Porterfield, Chris Santa Maria, Damian Stamer, and Lamar Whidbee.

Beverly McIver: Full Circle is curated by Kim Boganey, director of Scottsdale Public Art. This exhibition is generously supported by presenting sponsor Wells Fargo. Additional support is provided by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
