Michael Jones McKean: Open Reception

- Location: Fosdick Nelson Gallery
(7:00 PM - 9:00 PM)
The Religion

Michael Jones McKean, a 2010 Guggenheim Fellow and Alfred alumnus exhibiting internationally, will be in residence at the School of Art and Design for 12 days to construct an ambitious new installation for the Fosdick-Nelson Gallery.

The main component of McKean’s project, a linked series of boxy vitrines, small rooms and niches saturated in color, will house a series of sculptural vignettes that unfold their contents for the viewer as they amble through the gallery.

"The Religion," McKean’s evocative title for the exhibition, examines our relationship to objects, materiality and time to create what McKean describes as "densely elliptical, narrative spaces."

McKean has exhibited to critical acclaim in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Berlin, Tel Aviv, and Paris. He is the recipient of numerous grants and awards; The Guggenheim Fellowship in 2010, A Nancy Graves Foundation Award, an Artadia award, a VMFA Fellowship, and a number of State Arts Commission grants.

McKean has been artist-in-residence at The Core Program at the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, The International Studio and Curatorial Program in New York City, The Provincetown Fine Arts Work Center, The Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, Central Michigan University as the Stephen L. Barstow Fellow, The Archie Bray Foundation in Helena, MT, and Three Walls in Chicago, IL.

Michael Jones McKean is represented by Horton Gallery in New York City. He is associate professor of sculpture and extended media at Virginia Commonwealth University where he has taught since 2006.

The exhibition opens on Friday, Nov. 1 with an artist’s reception from 7-9 p.m. and closes Monday, Dec. 2, 2013. The gallery is open 11 a.m.-4 p.m. weekdays, 1-3 p.m. on weekends, and is closed during University holidays.

Michael’s exhibition and residency is made possible with generous contributions by: The School of Art and Design; The Miller Endowment for Excellence in the Arts; The Division of Ceramic Art; The McComsey Career Development Center; The Division of Sculpture and Dimensional Studies and the Division of Freshman Foundations.
