In a new body of work that includes photography, video and sound, Eritrean-born artist Dawit L. Petros explores the relationship between African histories and European modernism, tracing ideas about borders and narratives of migration, past and present. Along with nine African artists from five countries (Egypt, Eritrea, Kenya, Nigeria and South Africa), Petros traveled by road from Lagos, Nigeria to Amsterdam. Subsequent journeys to Italy and Morocco complete the remaining geographies explored. The Stranger's Notebook is the first museum exhibition for Dawit L. Petros in the midwest and a US premier of recent work that chronicles the artist's research on the timely topic of shifting identities and migration. The exhibit is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. beginning October 15 and running through December 14. Find out more

pollen blue circle

  Jason Pollen, celebrated textile artist and former chair of the KCAI fiber department, has come "Full Circle" in his latest exhibit at MLB Designs and Boutique. Forty percent of sales will be donated to the Jason Pollen Fund for student scholarships at Kansas City Art Institute. The artist had the following to say about this exhibit: Whatever their diameters, circles always feel full and complete, yet expectant. A circle embodies perfection while it also promises new possibilities and openings to fill. And the circle, no matter its outline, seems to hold eternity within it, forever bringing us back to our origins, albeit with fresh visions. During this most recent creative cycle, I have revisited and revived modes of working that date all the way back to my ‘twig work.’ Born of necessity in Paris in 1966, when I could no longer afford paint, I turned to my surroundings and began stitching twigs to raw canvas in order to continue following the urge of making things I have had since I was a small child. I have continued working with fibers, as well as drawing and painting, and pay I homage to those wood twigs in this…

“The Consent of Silence: The Hill Jar Series” New works by Richard Notkin

November 4 @ 5:00 pm - December 9 @ 5:00 pm
Zoll/Lieberman Gallery,
325 W. Huron
Chicago, IL 60654
+ Google Map

Richard Notkin ('70 ceramics) is an artist who, for nearly five decades, has focused his work on narrative ceramic sculptures and teapots imbued with political and social commentary. He has extensively researched historical ceramics to find inspiration, aesthetic styles and techniques which are pertinent to his detailed, image-based works. The new “Hill Jar Series” is based on a marvelous body of work produced during the Han Dynasties (circa 200 BCE – 200 AD) in China. These moderately scaled earthenware cylindrical jars have three small feet at their bases, often animals such as bears, low relief imagery of idyllic hunting scenes on their sides, and lush landscapes of mythically stylized mountains on the lids, representing the Five Sacred Mountains of the Returning Void, where the immortals were believed to reside. The surfaces were layered in somewhat imperfect lustrous glazes ranging from variegated and mottled jade-like green and grayish tones, adding a warm beauty to the imagery. Notkin states “The glazed reliefs on the cylinder walls and sculptural imagery of the lids of the Hill Jars provide the perfect format for my continuing explorations into the human condition, and my ongoing protests aimed squarely at the utter insanity of war. While I…

¿Qué Pasa, USA?

November 18, 2016 - January 7, 2017
La Esquina,
1000 W. 25th St.
Kansas City , MO 64108 United States
+ Google Map

Taking its title from the late 1970s bilingual sitcom of the same name, '¿Qué Pasa, USA?' is a group exhibition of 11 national artists that considers a broad spectrum of experiences that reflect and respond, specifically through humor, absurdity, and joy, to what it means to be a citizen in this country today. In the ethos of culturally specific sitcoms, the artists in this exhibition challenge dominant narratives through lightheartedness, exuberance, and candor to highlight nuanced experiences of difference, and expand the definition of citizenry in relationship to identity. From video installation to site specific fiber works, the exhibition weaves a range of narratives together to complicate our collective story. Curated by Charlotte Street Foundation's 2016-2017 Curator in Residence Lynnette Miranda, KCAI Fiber department faculty member.
