A collaboration of Irish artists Gareth Kennedy and Sarah Browne, Kennedy Browne’s videos, workshops, and sculptural installations have probed common stories of global capital: the effects on workers of relocating companies, the visionary boyhood narratives of tech company founders, and struggles over privacy in the age of the internet.
By highlighting KAM’s strong holdings of work from artists practicing in Chicago during the 1930s through the 1980s, this exhibition considers the problematic nature of art historical categories and explores what other stories are missed by perpetuating a single narrative.
Blue and White explores the technological advances, trade networks, and shared aesthetics that sustain a global appetite for blue-and-white ceramics.
