Alum in group show at Kala Art Institute
Tavarus Blackmon (M.F.A, ‘18) is featured in a group show presenting the latest work of the 2020-2021 Kala Art Institute’s Fellows and Media Residents.
The title of the exhibition, “Sea of Fertility – Looking At The Invisible”, is inspired by the name of the lunar sea – Mare Fecunditatis. Our imagination allows us to see the sea on the moon – unknown and invisible to our eyes. Similar to this, the artists in the exhibition explore the invisible or unnoticed but very important elements in our lives. They work hard to make this invisible visible through research, creative production and extra care and love to communities they serve.
In addition to Blackmon, the 2020-2021 Fellows and featured artists include Anthea Black, Alexa Burell, Elnaz Javani, Natani Notah, Pegah Pasalar, Jessica Sabogal and Shanna Strauss, tamara suarez porras, and Naomi van Niekerk.
A series of artist’s talks online will be available as well. Details to come.
“Sea of Fertility – Looking At The Invisible” runs from September 9 to November 19, 2021. An opening reception will be held September 9 from 6-8 pm.
Kala Fellowships and Media Residencies are awarded annually to a group of innovative artists working in printmaking, photography, painting/drawing, installation, video, sound, performance, and mixed media. This cohort of artists was selected by a Kala committee and two jurors, Media Artist alumni Veronica Graham, and Jovanna Venegas, Assistant Curator of Contemporary Art SFMOMA.
