Disappearance of the word,
Appearance of the world

Join us for the Opening Reception featuring Caroline Kent.

Artist Talk: Saturday, January 13, 2 p.m.
On view: January 12 through February 24

Chicago-based artist Caroline Kent explores the limits of language, the process of translation, and the joys of wandering “in the dark” in her otherworldly abstractions. Kent’s practice embraces uncertain and cosmic spaces; the dark, expansive grounds of her paintings become sites for ideas waiting to land, converge, and transform. Through her experiences watching subtitled films, researching Cyrillic texts and navigating unfamiliar languages while living in Eastern Europe, the artist discovered how the process of conflating images, icons, and translated words can shift paradigms and open up new worlds. In Disappearance of the word, Appearance of the world, Kent invents a painting language that a serves as a threshold to an alternate reality or future–one that we can all navigate and translate together.

Highlighting the process of translation and transformation through movement, the reception will include a dance performance entitled language for the living featuring members of tbd. dance collective, with choreography by Kat Fackler in conversation with the exhibition. Performances will occur in the gallery at 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. on January 12.
