Gallery X | 280 S. Columbus Dr., room 118
In “Realizing Things” Amanda Assaley (BFA 2018) and Matt Ryan (BFA 2017) present and question the way we form identities through study of the material culture connected to pop figure Kylie Jenner. If Kylie Jenner is a role model creating products for us to be like her, then how does her material presence inform us of the desires she manipulates within us? This exhibition examines these object’s ability to sculpt presences and moods, and how they work to change what we desire and how long we desire it.
A special performance that will expand on the concepts explored in the exhibition will take place during the opening reception.
