Zucker and Ho work on view in Santa Fe
Kevin Zucker (Asst. Professor) and Christopher Ho (Critic, Graduate Studies) collaborated on “Like Death, New Mexico Will Catch Up with You in the End”. The project consists of three exhibited components: a four-foot long chainsaw carved sculpture, a painting of a tumbleweed, and a book. The book, titled “The Late Work”, published by The Fisher Press, contains images, drawings, and descriptions of (imaginary) late works by the two artists, as imgained by 45 of their former students, who attended RISD between 2004 and 2009. In “Like Death, New Mexico Will Catch Up with You in the End” the tumbleweed is a metaphor for teaching, in which ideas remain alive and spread through students.
The exhibition will be on view at the Fisher Press Gallery in Santa Fe. New Mexico from July 16 – August 18, 2010. The opening will take place Friday, July 16, 2010, 5 – 8pm.
