Closing Reception Scheduled for RESIDUE Exhibition at The Carnegie Galleries

TC_logo_newReception to include artist panel discussion to highlight closing show on Saturday, Oct. 2, 2021

COVINGTON, KY (September 14, 2021) – The exhibition RESIDUE, now on view at The Carnegie, explores the links between artists, the works they exhibit and the viewers in the gallery. As the exhibition comes to a close, the public is invited to join several of the participating artists for a final look at the show and also a special panel discussion.

The Carnegie will host a closing reception for RESIDUE from noon to 6 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 2. From 3-4 p.m. Chef and RESIDUE artist, Maggie Lawson, will moderate a discussion featuring female-identified farmers/artists: Karla Batres Gilvin of Gilvin Family Farm; Toncia L. Chavez of ETC Produce & Provisions; Marykate Glenn of Mustard Seed Farm; and Amanda Wilson of Old Dutch Hops. The discussion will use Lawson’s installation Homemaking: A Speculative Pantry as a starting point for deeper conversations about the connections between art and farming.

Guests attending the final day of the exhibition and panel exhibition at The Carnegie are asked to wear a protective face covering/mask as part of Northern Kentucky’s ongoing efforts to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.

RESIDUE is curated by Maria Seda-Reeder who frequently highlights artists who operate in the social sphere and create objects and situations that encourage interaction and community engagement. The exhibition 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.

Artists featured in RESIDUE include: Laura Aguilar (Long Beach, CA); Batres/Gilvin (Morning View, KY); Latausha Cox (Cincinnati, OH); Sea Dax (Cincinnati); Aaron Delamatre (Cincinnati); EMPIRE CITIZENS (Latonia); Nona Faustine (Brooklyn); David Hammonds (Los Angeles); Clarity Haynes (New York City); Maggie Lawson, (Cincinnati); Liam Ze’ev O’Connor (Oakland); and Clint Woods (Cincinnati).

Oct. 9
Aronoff Center Jarson-Kaplan Theatre [Downtown]

Dedrick Weathersby as James Brown

REMEMBERING JAMES: The Life and Music of James Brown tells the story of the Godfather of Soul – Mr. James Brown. Starting with his early days, the show spans nearly two decades of what would become a monumental career. You’ll see how a divided country, the growing Civil Rights movement, and the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. shaped the artist’s work. Accompanied by an eight-piece band, this show brings the passion and music alive while offering a message of hope to a grief-stricken nation looking for a moment of healing and celebration.
