Ellen Carey: Dings, Pulls, and Shadows

January 17 - July 27
Amon Carter Museum of American Art, 3501 Camp Bowie Boulevard
Fort Worth, TX United States
+ Google Map

Since the 1990s, experimental photographer Alumna Ellen Carey has been making photographs that defy photographic conventions of depicting identifiable subjects. Instead, her works depict vibrant fields of color that are meditations on the very nature of photography as an image created by the action of light on a light-sensitive surface. The exhibition Ellen Carey: Dings, Pulls, and Shadows features seven key works that explore the artist’s interest in color, light, and the photographic process as the subject of her practice.

Kansas City, MO 64108 United States

The KCAI Crossroads Gallery: Center for Contemporary  Practice in partnership with the college's Current Perspectives Lecture Series is pleased to present Nor Boat Nor Fish No River/By the Missouri. The installation is the outcome of a detailed workshop led by artist,  Winifred  Lutz. The content and forms presented come from Lutz's interest and research about the Missouri River system, its history, and ecology. Her engagement with KCAI Fiber and Painting courses resulted in the fabrication of dozens of forms included in this site-specific gallery installation. The small gallery presents a curated selection of process samples, methodologies, and prototypes related to her papermaking practice and this project. This project was initiated by KCAI faculty members Marie Bannerot McInerney and Corey Antis. Widely known for her site-integrated installation sculpture, Winifred Lutz has created major installations and permanent public works in the United States and Europe.  Her outdoor installations are known for their remarkable sensitivity to the site, for how they underscore the vegetative and social processes that determine the discrete history of a place. She has traveled to study gardens in Japan,  the Sinai Peninsula, and Scotland. Past venues for her installations have included the Brooklyn Museum, the Brooklyn Bridge Anchorage, the Institute…
