Kelcy Chase Folsom, the Alfred Ceramic Art Museum guest curator for the museum’s virtual reality exhibition Full Capacity, will deliver a Zoom talk on Nov. 12 at 4:30pm.

 Folsom is a full time studio artist living in Kingstown. NY. In 2015, he joined the faculty of the Division of Ceramic Art, School of Art and Design at Alfred University as the Robert Chapman Turner Teaching Fellow and held that position until 2018.

 His solo exhibition hereafter was held at the Alfred Ceramic Art Museum in 2017. Currently his work can be seen at the Ethan Cohen Gallery, Beacon, NY, in the exhibition Darkest before Dawn: Art in a Time of Uncertainty, which features works in all media by several international artists. Darkest before Dawn will be on display at the Ethan Cohen Gallery from Nov. 1 through Jan. 30, 2021.

 Folsom’s Zoom presentation will focus on the conceptual and design process of creating the Alfred Ceramic Art Museum’s virtual reality exhibition as well as aspects of his own artistic practice. The following is a quote from his curator’s statement for Full Capacity:

 “Reality is relative to the person experiencing it. To try to see what someone else sees can be most rewarding and sometimes most difficult. Art evokes a perpetual, empathetic activity, an attempt parallel and most present during this time of strife and uncertainty. How will we describe and remember this moment without each other in physical space and to what extent will it change the physicality of art?”
