Just about 10 minutes down the street, the Kimball Art Center welcomes you to attend The Yard’s three temporary exhibits, showcasing now until January 2022. Claire Sherman, David Hartt, and Cara Despain all invite you to live in their work, as it showcases our landscapes, environments and social climate.
Recurring daily, Claire Sherman’s exhibition Here Now beautifully addresses our relationship with nature and the contemporary media, through a series of imaginary scenic areas including forests, caves, rocks, and grasses. These paintings are inspired by imagery she has synthesized from her photos or actual imagery that she collected over time. Tune into Art Talk: Claire Sherman, a free zoom call where Sherman herself will go in-depth with her art.
In Memorium: Carbon Paintings by Cara Despain explores the collective gatherings of burnt debris from the fires occurring over the last 3 years across the west coast. According to Cara, the art “serve(s) as markers of a changing climate and exist in memoriam of the consequences of human habitation on the planet.”
Enjoy a change of pace and head to the city of Watts in David Hartt: On Exactitude in Science (Watts), an artistic film urging you to question the built environment you live in and the cultural factors that play into empowerment and subjugation.
