Karyn Olivier: Everything That’s Alive Moves: UB Art Galleries, University of Buffalo, New York
Karyn Olivier makes monuments. She investigates scale, public memory, and how they relate to issues of inclusivity and acceptance. The exhibition Everything That’s Alive Moves brings together two themes the artist has focused on in recent years: larger-than-life scale and the minute, modest gesture. An obelisk sculpture, a car made entirely of shoes, and a brick wall built using discarded clothing as mortar are among the works selected to be reimagined and constructed on-site at UB Art Galleries.
Karyn Olivier: Everything That’s Alive Moves is organized by the Institute of Contemporary Art, University of Pennsylvania and is curated by ICA Daniel and Brett Sundheim Chief Curator Anthony Elms.
Support for Karyn Olivier: Everything That’s Alive Moves has been provided by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, the Edna Wright Andrade Fund of the Philadelphia Foundation, the Henry Moore Foundation, and by a Tyler Dean’s Grant from Temple University.
