THE LEROY NEIMAN CENTER GALLERY|May 9–June 13, 2013

An exhibition by Sophie Kahn.

OPENING RECEPTION|THURSDAY, MAY 9, 4:00–6:00 p.m.

Engaging with questions of time, history, vision, identity, and the body, Sophie Kahn (MFA 2013) combines digital cutting-edge processes within an archival and historiographic tradition. The resulting sculptures, 3D printed busts fabricated from imperfect data, recall monuments that depict the artist as both an innovator and archeologist. Using museum-style modes of framing, Artifact excavates the still image of the portrait through post-photographic means.
