Canzani Center Screening Room
In conjunction with the exhibition Kim Faler: This Must Be the Place, Beeler Gallery presents a talk featuring Massachusetts-based artist Kim Faler.
Faler’s sculpture, installations, drawings, and photographs explore the functionality found within architecture and design and press our emotional understanding of these everyday objects against their perceived logic. Her material-based works have been exhibited internationally and throughout the United States, including exhibitions at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (Mass MoCA), Art Dubai, Sp/Arte in São Paulo, Mixed Greens in New York, and at the David Winton Bell Gallery at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island.
Faler has received numerous grants and residencies, including the Joan Mitchell MFA Grant, a U.S. Fulbright Scholarship (to Brazil), the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation Residency in Captiva, Florida, and the Artpace International Artist in Residence Program in San Antonio, Texas. She received her BFA from Ohio Wesleyan University and her MFA from the Cranbrook Academy of Art. She lives and works in North Adams, Massachusetts.
Faler will talk at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 14, at the Canzani Center at Columbus College of Art & Design (60 Cleveland Ave.). The event is part of the Beeler Gallery Visiting Artists & Scholars Series and is free and open to the public.
