Kavi Gupta presents Surface is Only a Material Vehicle For Spirita group exhibition spotlighting the work of eight dynamic voices within the field of contemporary abstraction, guest curated by artist Kennedy Yanko.

Is there a metaphysical side to materiality? Sculptor Kennedy Yanko’s curatorial debut with Kavi Gupta explores the complex perceptual relationships that exist between the surface realities of aesthetic phenomena, and the illusions and transcendental insights experienced by artists and viewers of the work.

Surface is Only a Material Vehicle For Spirit features a new, site-specific installation by Katie Bell, along with works by Pamela Council, Alexandre Diop, Gracelee Lawrence, Charles Mason III, Monica Rezman, Jessica Stoller, and Chiffon Thomas.

Opening reception: Saturday, September 25, 2021, from 5 – 8 PM.
