West Gallery: The Catherine G. Murphy Gallery at St. Catherine University proudly presents a new exhibition of work by Chicago artist Caroline Kent.
The Kármán Line, named after engineer and physicist Theodore von Kármán, commonly represents the boundary between Earth's atmosphere and outer space. This reference to the crossing of territories relates specifically to the artist’s wall-sized paintings that, due to their scale as well as their scumbled, black backgrounds and their installation within narrow, niche-like walls, creates an alternate viewing space that invites physical, spatial and emotional interaction. Positing abstract painting as a site that can be enacted upon, this exhibition explores a diverse art practice engaging that site through text, the body and performance. Kent is St. Catherine University's 2018 Amy Marie Sears Visiting Artist.
All events are free and open to the public. Gallery hours: M-F, 8-8; S-S, 12-6
This exhibition is presented as part of a larger collaboration between Augsburg University, Bethel University, the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and St. Catherine University in conjunction with the publication of Kenneth Steinbach's book, Creative Practices for Visual Artists (Routledge, 2018).
