The SOFA Chicago Sculpture Objects Functional Art + Design Fair takes place this weekend, November 6th – 9th, at Navy Pier. Find Mindy Solomon Gallery in Booth #203.
We will feature artists Gregorio Peño, Lauren Mabry, David Peters, Kirk Mangus, Josh DeWeese, David Hicks, and Kang Hyo Lee.
Mindy Solomon Gallery will also participate in the SOFA lecture series on Saturday, November 8th, from 12-1pm in room 324, presenting Kirk Mangus: Things Love.
Opening in fall 2014, the Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland presents the first comprehensive survey of the work of Kirk Mangus (1952-2013), an internationally recognized ceramicist and head of the ceramics department for 30 years at Kent State University. Rose Bouthillier, Associate Curator and Publications Manager, MOCA Cleveland, presents an introduction to this notable artist and exhibition highlighting his immeasurable contributions to the field. Eva Kwong, Mangus’s widow, and Mindy Solomon offer perspectives on Mangus’s influences, forms, and style—all of which propose an unguarded, impassioned way of thinking, living, and loving.
Rose Bouthillier and Eva Kwong sign copies of the monograph produced in association with Mangus’s survey exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary at Cleveland following this lecture at Mindy Solomon Gallery booth #203.
