15novAll DayDouble Exhibit: Resort and Knockoffs at Fed Galleries @KCAD


Event Details

Exhibition runs through January 31!

The Fed Galleries at Kendall College of Art & Design (KCAD) are showing a double art exhibit featuring the work of Andrew Ellis Johnson and Susanne Slavick in Resort and the dynamic exhibition, featuring work from the Baker Furniture Collection, the Gordon Collection and KCAD students, Knockoffs.

About Resort:
Resort presents the work of artists and life partners Andrew Ellis Johnson and Susanne Slavick. Through their artistic pursuits and their work as colleagues at Carnegie Mellon University, the pair have developed a strong creative bond driven by overlapping worldviews and daily collaboration. Either independently or together, they have been featured in venues such as the Chelsea Museum of Art in New York, Arti et Amicitiae in Amsterdam, the Korean National University of the Arts in Seoul, and Temple University in Rome.

Through a mix of drawings, paintings, and video works, Johnson and Slavick have crafted a thoughtful and stirring exploration of the intersection of security and insecurity as it pertains to the ongoing global refugee crisis.

About Knockoffs:
For the first month of the exhibition’s run select pieces from the Baker Furniture Collection will be shown alongside select works from the Gordon Collection in The Fed Galleries. The Baker Furniture Collection includes period furniture and decorative arts spanning three centuries.

KCAD students visit The Fed Galleries at various times throughout the first month in order to observe the historic pieces and then create “knockoffs” of them in a variety of mediums. The students’ interpretations are displayed in an adjacent gallery space during the second month of the exhibition, forging an intriguing and active contemplation of the implications of emulation.
