Join us for a conversation with artist Mel Kendrick and Nancy Princenthal, in conjunction with his solo exhibition, Mel Kendrick: Seeing Things in Things, currently on view through February 19, 2023. Princenthal contributed an introductory essay to the fully illustrated catalogue, co-published and distributed by Rizzoli International.

Introduced by Corinne Erni, Deputy Director of Curatorial Affairs and Senior Curator of ArtsReach and Special Projects, the conversation will explore Kendrick’s decades-long career, approach to artmaking, process and material, and the possibilities of sculpture, followed by a short book signing for the exhibition publication.
