Threading Pages – Residency Projects: New Work by 2018-2019 Kala Fellows- Opening Reception
Kala Gallery is excited to present Threading Pages, featuring new work by 2018-2019 Kala Fellowship artists. The exhibition includes Dahn Gim, Malisa Humphrey, Yen-Hua Lee, Mary V Marsh, and Keith Secola. Kala Fellowships are awarded annually to a group of innovative artists working in printmaking, photography, painting/drawing, installation, video, and mixed media. Fellowship artists are selected from a competitive field of applicants from around the globe. This cohort of Fellowship artists were selected by a Kala Committee and two guest jurors: Leah Rosenberg, a fellowship alumni artist and Cecile Puretz, Access & Community Engagement Manager of The Contemporary Jewish Museum.
Artists in Threading Pages explore ways to reveal personal narratives connecting to elements from historical and personal events. The stories told in the exhibition range from a tale about hybridized culture and objecthood to explorations of the idea of home and belonging, the experience of reading books and processing information systems, and thoughts about the remains of colonization and hopes for the current passage to decolonization.
