Exhibition Opening / Yvonne Osei: Tailored Landscapes

For the 2017 Kranzberg Exhibition Series, conceptual artist Yvonne Osei creates a large-scale photo installation to occupy the breadth and width of the indoor gallery, constructing an environment where textiles create landscape. Inspired by both the cultural and physical landscapes of the Park, Osei weaves design motifs from her home country of Ghana into her photographic and videographic documentation of the Park to create a new and unique pattern for Laumeier. Using her textural understanding of fashion design to mold and manipulate an adhesive fabric, Osei creates an environment that uses the architecture of the gallery as figure and form. With Tailored Landscapes, Osei continues her inquiry utilizing the import of textiles as a medium to celebrate diversity in culture and in nature. Opening reception is located in the Adam Aronson Fine Arts Center. Free, all ages. Curated by Dana Turkovic; supported by Nancy and Ken Kranzberg. Exhibition runs Saturday, November 4, 2017–Sunday, March 4, 2018.
