Reflection, Refraction, Reaction, 2021

An individual and collaborative exhibition with artists Courtney Kessel, Cayla Skillin-Brauchle, and Danielle Wyckoff

The artists in this exhibition find common threads through feminist frameworks: their works and practices, both individual and collaborative, prioritize communication, collaboration, and care although each may manifest in wildly different ways. Whether through a respect for the distinct properties of materials as shown in sculptural and installation work, to the use of dialogue and interaction in performative work, to works on paper developed in meditative moments, to gazes and spaces documented photographically, and to zines crowdsourced to tell a fuller story and to initiate political change, the artists offer exhibition participants moments of consideration and conversation, moments of directional shifts, and moments of mutual action to create something new: reflection, refraction, reaction.

This exhibition was on view in Fall 2021 at the Morlan Gallery at Transylvania University in Lexington, KY.  You can read more about the exhibition and accompanying collaborative zine workshop here and here.
