The new Crossroads location will launch this Spring with Chromaphobia & Chromaphilia, two concurrent and thematically related alumni exhibitions sponsored by KCAI and organized by the KCAI Gallery and Director of Alumni Relations and Development, Marcus Cain (’98 painting and printmaking).  Chromaphobia, guest curated by artist, business owner and KCAI alumna, Peregrine Honig (’98 painting and printmaking), features KCAI alumni whose works represent a literal and metaphoric absence of color relative to themes of identity, physical and psychic transformation, disappearance and re-emergence. Exhibiting alumni include Laura DeAngelis ('95 sculpture), Teri Frame ('05 ceramics & art history), Ben Harle ('12 ceramics & art history), Linda Lighton ('89 sculpture) in collaboration with Mark Southerland, Nathan Mabry (’01 ceramics), Nobuhito Nishigawara ('99 ceramics), Theodosia Pulitzer ('01 ceramics) and Armando Ramos ('99 ceramics).  Chromaphilia, guest curated by James Martin, features KCAI alumni whose studio practice is largely influenced by the presence of color as it relates to themes of optical desire, color theory and spiritual transcendence. Exhibiting alumni include Cary Esser ('78 ceramics), Christian Holstad (’94 ceramics), Kahlil Irving ('15 ceramics), Deborah Kupinsky ('99 ceramics), Roberto Lugo (’12 ceramics), Lauren Mabry ('07 ceramics), Bobby Silverman ('80 ceramics) and Joey Watson ('14 ceramics).

In this exhibition over fifty resources are presented by half local and national artists, musicians, children, curators, archivists, as well as those from varying titles or titles in-between. These resources are displayed in a manner that encourages interaction within the exhibition space. FIFTY AT FIFTY FIFTY is an archive for collective research, collaboration, documentation and exchange. It is organized in an effort to archive past histories, current programming, and future endeavors for the gallery on both a digital and physical scale. How does a new institution set parameters for archiving and how do we build upon that in ways that go against and alongside previous archive histories? With ‘expanded archives’ being a contemporary ubiquitous curatorial and artistic practice on a national scale, what does it look like within a local framework and how do we react in a forward-thinking manner? FIFTY AT FIFTY FIFTY is an archive that seeks to do just that. It traditionally catalogues artist information, biographies, and images of works on our Digital Archive platform. It also seeks to create a space for the alternative; a space for varied artist resources, race and gender inclusion, humor and collaboration.
