Sat 3/17 @ 2PM
The Akron Art Museum will greet the spring with an exhibit of work by ceramic artist Jun Kaneko called Blurred Lines, which will be installed in its galleries and the Bud and Susie Rogers Garden.
It features what the museum calls “transformational moments” in Kaneko’s 50-year career, among them paintings and drawing, several large-scale sculptures and a site-specific installation of his 65-foot painting Mirage. The exhibition is curated by AAM director/CEO Mark Masuoka, who has a relationship of more than three decades with the artist who says he chose works “for their powerful, yet contemplative presence.”
Masuoka will also give a series of gallery talks to enlighten visitors about different aspects of Kaneko’s work. This week he’s giving one titled “Process: Big Is Better.” It’s free with regular admission (free to AAM members) and there are only 20 spots per tour, so register here. There will also be talking on Sat 4/14 and Sat 5/12.
