CSULB Art Alum Kendell Carter is in an exhibition series at the Armory Center for the Arts in Pasadena, California, running from May 10 to June 14, 2014. The series, curated by CSULB Art History alum Sinead Finnerty-Pyne, is entitled Expanding on an expansive subject, Part 6: Kendell Carter, Constructs will showcase his newest works, multilayered paintings that critique and acknowledge the social constructs that exist within individuals and communities through the physical and aesthetic properties of painting. Through a multi-sourced approach to art making that includes sampling from pop culture, design, architecture, and modernism, Carter explores painting’s position within a post-modern condition. Using hip-hop culture as an aesthetic and ideological model, he references the fluidity of contemporary culture where individuals and objects flow in and out of identities, roles, and expectations.
