In partnership with the Cleveland Institute of Art, artist Lauren Kalman will discuss her work and give a preview of her exhibition at The Sculpture Center that opens Friday, October 8.
Lauren Kalman is a visual artist based in Detroit, whose practice is rooted in contemporary craft, sculpture, video, photography and performance. Her work investigates constructions of the ideal, the politics of craft, and the built environment through performances using her body.
Raised in Cleveland, Kalman completed her MFA in Art and Technology from the Ohio State University and earned a BFA with a focus in Metals from Massachusetts College of Art.
Her work has been featured in exhibitions at the Renwick Gallery at the Smithsonian Museum of American Art, Museum of Arts and Design, Museum of Contemporary Craft, Cranbrook Art Museum, Contemporary Art Museum Houston, Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Mint Museum, World Art Museum in Beijing, and the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris. Her work is in the permanent collection of the Françoise van den Bosch Foundation at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Smithsonian Museum of American Art, Detroit Institute of Art, Museum of Arts and Design, and the Korean Ceramics Foundation.
Her visit is generously supported by CIA’s George Bickford Fund for Visiting Artists, sponsored by the Foundation and Craft programs.
