This exhibition presents sculptural costumes and drawings by international performance/sculptural artist, Sha Sha Higby, who is known for her evocative and haunting performances using the exquisite and ephemeral body sculpture she meticulously creates herself and moves within. Elaborate sculptural costume, dance, and puppetry explore magic and emotion, creating an atmospheric world within the borders between death and life.
The three-part exhibition Women Artists in the KMA Collection will highlight paintings, prints, and 3-D work made by women artists in the 20th century. Part I will explore the work of women artists who began their career prior to the feminist movement in art in the 1970s. The work included in Part I is for the most part abstract and in the form of paintings, drawings and prints. This exhibition will place these artists within the larger art world context in which they worked, exploring the relationship between gender, art making, and abstraction.
