In her upcoming art roundtable discussion A Sense of Pride: Transdermal: Across the Skin, recent MFA graduate from Alfred University, Ashley Kerr explores the plurality of gender and identity, and the intersection of painting and sculpture.
Kerr was selected as a winner in the International Sculpture Center 2018 Outstanding Student Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Award program, as well as an Honorable Mention in 2016. Her work deals with the nature of expectation and a person’s need to maintain a consistent internal logic as it pertains to media, materials and experiences as well as the intersection of gender, technology, sculpture, femininity, and masculinity. By subverting those very expectations, she aims to create sculptural fictions that reveal the underlying structures and mechanisms of how we experience the world and thereby expose truths, however small or large they may be.
A Sense of Pride is a program series at NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale sponsored by the Broward Pride Grant at the Community Foundation of Broward.
This event is free and open to the public.
