Kristen Morgin – October 27th, 5pm, UT-108

Posted on October 21, 2015 by School of Art

KM_HappyTheHammer14_sKristen Morgin’s sculptures, comprised primarily of fired and unfired clay, are true to scale objects. Using unassuming materials to render readily accessible objects, Morgin’s work captures the complexity of the present by way of the past. The corroding surfaces of her objects not only capture the here and now but protrude fragility, mortality and decay.  Ms. Morgin was born in 1968 in Brunswick, GA. Her work was featured in Overthrown: Clay Without Limits, Denver Art Museum, 12th Istanbul Biennial, Huckleberry Finn at CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Art in San Francisco, Unmonumental at the New Museum in New York, Thing at UCLA Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, Red Eye at the Rubell Family Collection in Miami. Ms. Morgin lives and works in Gardena, CA. For more information, please go to Marc Selwyn Gallery, or Zach Feuer Gallery.
