The Utah Museum of Contemporary Art believes in the power of the art of our time. Through programming, advocacy, and collaboration, we work with artists and communities to build a better world.

Shawn Porter

Porters’ works are derived from observation, developed by idea, and realized through a mastery of diverse materials and technique.  The physicality of his installations capture the viewer with an aesthetic comprised of formal elements and a playful taste for pushing the boundaries of material, balance and weight, holding an individual long enough for reflection of self, structure and society.He has exhibited his work in various local galleries, events and public installations for the past 15 years, including his most recent work Spatial Perception at 1950 West North Temple.
