Nina Katchadourian: Curiouser
September 15 12:00 am
Location: Cantor Arts Center, just off Palm Drive, at Museum Way and Lomita Drive - Map Link
Open Wed-Mon 11am - 5pm, Thursdays until 8pm; admission is free. CLOSED TUESDAY.
This mid-career survey will explore several major bodies of work by celebrated Stanford-born, Brooklyn-based artist Nina Katchadourian (b. 1968), including video, photography, sculpture, and sound art. Katchadourian’s work reveals the creative potential, to use the artist’s words, that “lurks within the mundane”. Using ingenuity and humor, her practice encourages us to reinvigorate our own sense of curiosity and creativity, and to see our everyday surroundings as a site of discovery and possibility. This exhibition is organized by the Blanton Museum of Art.
