Event Theme:

Shadow Work

Working with your unconscious mind to uncover the parts you repress and hide from yourself. Join OMADEXP on November 4th, 2023 at MASQ’D as we make the intangible, tangible. In partnership with KANEKO, we invite you to Shadow Work, a theme that expands on world-renowned artist Linda Fleming and her current exhibition Experimenta De Vacuo Spatio, now on display at KANEKO.

Artist Exhibition at KANEKO: Linda Fleming: Experimenta De Vacuo Spatio

Linda Fleming creates places that are as much air as material: places of shadows and light where the viewer can sometimes become a participant by entering the sculpture. The intangibility of flowing gaseous materials, the shape that a sound might take, or a diagram of the wind are starting points made manifest in these constructions. They are molecular and galactic and attempt to coax the intangible into sturdy structures and durable materials that will not easily disintegrate as much of the work of women has throughout history. Physical sensation and perception are interdependent… the thing that is seen and the thing that is seeing conjure our world.


Parking: KANEKO is located in three turn-of-the-century warehouses in Omaha’s historic Old Market district. Street, meter, and service lot parking are available throughout the Old Market.  Enter: Please enter through our East KANEKO gallery doors on 11th & Jones Streets. Accessibility: Our facilities are completely ADA accessible. As an organization that encourages the exploration of the creative process, we strive to make sure everyone feels safe and welcome in our space.
