KRASL ART CENTER MEMBERS' SHOW: HONORING THE PAST


September 15-October 29


Opening Party: Friday, September 15 - 6:00 pm

As the Krasl Art Center prepares to break ground on its newly designed outdoor space in 2018, we reflect on the rich history and individuals that have made the Sculpting Community project, the Krasl Art Center, and greater Southwest Michigan community all that it is. In a similar vein, the fall artlab artist Carrie Rubinstein reflects on her family’s personal history to imaginatively create spaces that came before her lifetime.
 
In 2017, KAC member artists are invited to celebrate, share and honor their own past in the members’ show. Whether it is a reflection on self, others, materials, places or time, artists are invited to submit 1 never-before-seen artwork for display in the KAC galleries.

Chicago, just 100 miles west and one large lake expanse from the Krasl Art Center, is home to a bevy of contemporary artists who are creating provocative work, exhibiting worldwide and participating in critical dialogues about art and the world as we see it. This exhibition highlights artists both known and emerging, including Dawoud Bey, Michelle Grabner, the Homan Square Project, Read/Write Library, Aram Han Sifuentes, Tony Tasset, and Sadie Woods. Art on view ranges from painting, photography and sculpture to sound, installation and social practices.

The Art Next Door is curated by the Krasl Art Center.
