Local and National Artists Return to Historic Exhibition Space

COVINGTON, KY –The Carnegie is pleased to welcome patrons and artists back into the galleries on June 17, 2021 with the exhibition RESIDUE, guest curated by Maria Seda-Reeder. The twelve artists in RESIDUE represent this region alongside artists working across the United States.

Seda-Reeder is a curator who frequently highlights artists who operate in the social sphere and create objects and situations that encourage interaction and community engagement. RESIDUE focuses on works that invite us to co-create meaning and enter a dialogue with images in the galleries. The work done by artists in their studio is completed by thoughtful participation by the viewers. As such, that gesture is passed on from artist to patron and from patron out into the world.

“Maria is a smart and talented curator working so hard to provide opportunities for artists to build on their ideas and present new bodies of work,” said Carnegie Exhibitions Director, Matt Distel. “The Carnegie is always looking for ways to create a compelling environment for artists and guests alike. Working with Maria ensures that this will happen and I am so pleased to see this exhibition as the way that the galleries re-open from a long period of renovation and quarantine.”
