This Saturday, November 3rd, Kathryn Cornelius kicks off her first solo show at Curator's Office.
If you're accustomed to thinking of Cornelius as an artworld interventionist--staging faux red carpet events at art fairs, or posing as a one-woman janitorial service for art galleries along the 14th street corridor--then Common Ground may surprise you. In this exhibition, instead of using the art world as her stage set, Cornelius ventures out into the natural landscape, posing questions about our relationship with not just the environment but also spirituality and the invisible other.
As you probably know, I'm a big fan of Kathryn's work--so I'm more than a little pleased that I was able to contribute an essay for the exhibition brochure.
