MOAH:CEDAR announces its latest exhibition and artist-in-residence, Amy Kaps: “What’s Black and White and Pink All Over?” The exhibit will continue through Nov. 25.
Kaps, an interdisciplinary artist, is in constant dialogue with her surroundings and those who inhabit it. Highly conceptual with the intention of altering perceptions and provoking thought, Kaps’ objective is to convey honesty and question the status quo, all while offering viewers a feast for the senses. Kaps challenges the viewer to identify the common denominator, and recognize the similarities in our differences -- connecting us regardless of age, race, or gender.
“What’s Black and White and Pink All Over?” is Kaps’ latest exhibition in her “Victus Versus/Striped World” series, transforming the MOAH:CEDAR galleries into one of her iconic black, white, and striped installations. A new series of work by Kaps and her longtime collaborator, photographer Eric Schwabel, will also adorn the gallery.
During her residency, Kaps will host a series of engagement events, including the “Judy Garland/Frank Zappa Sing-A-Long” at 7 p.m. Oct. 4, the “Pow! Wow! Print Lab,” a workshop where guests are invited to bring a fabric item (a tote bag or t-shirt, for example) and have one of Kaps’ latest photographic images transferred onto it from 2 to 8 p.m. Oct. 21, , and the “Not Everything is Black and White” panel discussion regarding cultural appropriation from 4 to 6 p.m. Nov. 17.
Together with the Museum of Art & History (MOAH), MOAH:CEDAR is a catalyst for engaging a diverse audience through captivating exhibitions, innovative artists, and dynamic programming. The Gallery encourages progressive ideas as well as new and experimental genres of artwork, which highlight performance, education, and studio practice.
MOAH:CEDAR is open 2 to 8 p.m. Thursday through Sunday. For more information, visit www.lancastermoah.org/moah-cedar or call (661) 723-6250.
