The Kansas City Art Institute is home to faculty that are passionate about teaching because they are artists devoted to their craft and the continued growth of their artistic practice. The campus at large is a creative community made up of full-time faculty, adjunct faculty, and staff who work together contributing to a diverse landscape of talent and creativity. The 2017 KCAI Biennial Exhibition will include both faculty and staff members with a studio practice, focusing on sculptural exploration and uncovering the many ways that artists form ideas and give form to those ideas.
This exhibition is organized by Jennifer Baker and has been planned to coincide with The 27th International Sculpture Conference: Intersection + Identities being held in Kansas City on October 25-28, 2017. Submissions were juried by Jennifer Baker, Assistant Curator at H&R Block Artspace; Sally Frater, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at Ulrich Museum of Art; and Joey Orr, Assistant Curator of Research at the Spencer Museum of Art.
