“Actual Scale” - Exhibition & Opening Reception at Kala Gallery
Kala Art Institute is proud to present "Actual Scale," a group exhibition that explores visual discrepancies and disorienting shifts in scale, and includes new works in photography, video, sculpture and drawing. Seven visual artists --as well as a studio collective which includes three children--investigate aspects of the relativity of scale. The resulting images and objects range from the highly miniaturized to the dramatically over-sized.
The exhibition is comprised of artists approaching the topic of scale from a variety of diverse vantage points: The use of digital tools and technology is represented, alongside works that feature a high level of hand-produced craftsmanship. Other unlikely pairings include works that investigate imaging, based on detailed scientific study, next to works underscored by a witty materiality and child-like playfulness. In their juxtapositions, the works of Actual Scale suggest that Alice might have actually exited Wonderland through a rabbit-hole, only to find herself inside a fantastical diorama, climbing a mountain of children's socks.
Please join us for a Gallery Conversation with the artists on Saturday, March 16 at 2:00 pm. The event is free of charge and open to the public.
