Karen Kilimnik Exhibition Announcement
May 6th, 2012
The Brant Foundation is pleased to announce its Karen Kilimnik exhibition, opening on Sunday, May 6, 2012. The exhibition will include installation, paintings, photographs and drawings from the years 1982 – 2012. These works reference subjects as seemingly disparate as witchcraft, Napoleon, World War II, set design, the solar system, magic and equestrian themes. The exhibition continues through September 2012.
This presentation of Kilimnik’s work permits a rigorous consideration of her practice through a combinative display of new work, historical retrospective and re-interpretation afforded by the Brant Foundation Art Study Center’s dynamic space and country idyll. The artist seizes the opportunity to reanimate some of her most iconic works by exhibiting them in newly realized forms, resulting in an application of her uniquely refracted perspective to the exhibition space and the works on display.
