Opening tomorrow, October 17th at Kala Art Institute, Berkeley is group exhibition: “The Making is A Re-Making” featuring work by Adam Donnelly & David Janesko, Kevin Frances, Rachel Granofsky, Adrienne Heloise, Erin Colleen Johnson, Jesse Boardman Kauppila, Nance O’Banion, Farnaz Shadravan and Emma Spertus. The exhibition presents new work by artists who use materials and resources from everyday life to generate new worlds and systems. Objects, spaces or experiences can be used to create new worlds from old ones, transformed via new arrangements, compositions, re-purposing or other experimental methods creating an experience of unexpected and magical perceptional shifts.
What are Worlds made of? “Not from nothing… Worldmaking starts from worlds already on hand: the making is a remaking.” -Nelson Goodman (Ways of Worldmaking, 1978)
Worlds are built from the worlds of our experience – whether it’s already experienced or imagined. The Making is A Re-Making explores new ways of worldmaking recreated from our everyday life — the spectacles of the mundane.
A gallery conversation with the artists is scheduled for Saturday, November 2 at 2pm. The event is free of charge and open to the public. For more information on “The Making is A Re-Making” exhibition visit Kala Art Institute.
