KAM's MetaModern Exhibition Opens January 30
Works of the modernist era are reconsidered and reimagined in a new exhibition at Krannert Art Museum. The paintings, sculptures, photography, and video work in MetaModern focus on the esteem given to midcentury design objects and examine their style and role in history in the context of today's aesthetics and culture. Conrad Bakker, an associate professor in the School of Art and Design, contributed several paintings to the collection of pieces by more than 20 artists. Curated by Ginger Gregg Duggan and Judith Hoos Fox, the exhibition will continue at Krannert Art Museum through March 29 and then will travel to five museums across the country.
