Conner Contemporary Art is pleased to present Unknowns, an exhibition of new work by John Kirchner and This Shape We're In, an exhibition of new video by Brandon Morse.
In Unknowns John Kirchner converses with unknown 19th century painters. Kirchner augments damaged vintage portraits, landscapes and history paintings with articles of clothing and other common objects. The artist's interventions with the works of his anonymous predecessors are thoughtful, critical and sometimes humorous. Kirchner, whose art furthers principles of the Arte Povera and Surrealist movements, has exhibited work at the Mattress Factory, Pittsburgh, PA, the Katonah Museum of Art, Katonah, NY, The Albright-Knox Gallery, Buffalo, NY and the Anchorage Museum of Art, Anchorage, AL.
There will be an opening reception for the artist Saturday, January 31st from 6-8pm. Artist in attendance.
