Karsten Lund, Assistant Curator, provides an introduction to the work on view in Klein / Olson.

Through a selection of their collage, sculpture, and installation works, the exhibition allows room for an encounter with the artists’ distinct practices while also drawing out affinities between them. Attentive to matters of representation, Klein and Olson stage various approaches—whether confrontational in nature or more abstract—as a means to examine ways of being in the world today.

While working with text, physical materials, or photographic images, both Olson and Klein employ strategies of collage and portraiture to animate, and at times destabilize, issues of gender and identity. In doing so, their work looks at larger power structures, value systems, and social role models.
