Gallery Talk: Nina Katchadourian: Curiouser


Please join Veronica Roberts, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Blanton Museum of Art, for a Gallery Talk in Nina Katchadourian: Curiouser. Roberts was the curator of Curiouser at the Blanton, where the show originated.

Nina Katchadourian: Curiouser explores several major bodies of work by celebrated Stanford-born, Brooklyn-based artist Nina Katchadourian including video, photography, sculpture, and sound art. Katchadourian’s work reveals the creative potential, to use the artist’s words, that “lurks within the mundane.” Using ingenuity and humor, her practice encourages us to reinvigorate our own sense of curiosity and creativity, and to see our everyday surroundings as a site of discovery and possibility.

This exhibition is organized by the Blanton Museum of Art and is on view from September 15, 2017 – January 7, 2018 in Pigott Family Gallery at Cantor Arts Center.

This exhibition is organized by the Blanton Museum of Art.
