Lacey McKinney: Reconfiguration

November 14, 2020 – February 28, 2021

Using portraiture as her point of departure, Lacey McKinney examines themes of identity and embodiment through the human face and figure. Painting with acrylic and oil, McKinney merges multiple faces into one composition—blurring together moments in time. Calling attention to the fallacy that humans maintain a singular fixed or identity and challenging the history of genre portraiture, McKinney questions how much information can be gleaned from a single portrait.

The Floating Bridge: Postmodern and Contemporary Japanese Ceramics

The Everson began collecting contemporary Japanese ceramics in earnest in the mid 1970s, an experimental period when artists were applying geometric forms and conceptual strategies to traditional materials and forms. The exhibition highlights this under-recognized generation of artists who are now credited with laying the groundwork for today’s contemporary ceramic movement in Japan.
