Talking Head

January 17, 2019 - May 11, 2019

Creativity Gallery

Talking Head offers a look inside an ambitious, in-progress printmaking project: a variable edition of printed assemblage sculptures by artist Peter Kelly. Combining lithography, screenprinting, and vacuum forming, this assemblage project explores the intersection of printmaking and sculpture. The exhibition highlights the subjective assembly process and offers a new prototype for understanding the human head—a layered form, a coming apart and piecing together of printed matter.
