Join us as we celebrate Kimball Art Center's newest exhibition "Body and Soul," featuring more than 20 local artists.
In today’s social media-driven landscape, we are surrounded by portraits — from candid snapshots to highly-staged selfies. "Body and Soul" explores the lasting power of this classical genre across contemporary painting, photography, text-based installations, and more. Established tropes are both embraced and reinvented, presenting diverse approaches to portraiture as a means of commemoration, reflection, and social critique. From faithful likeness to fantasy and fracture, the power of portraits is that they are about more than what we look like; they reveal who we are.
Drinks and light appetizers will be served.
