Goldfinch is excited and proud to announce 2001 Annual Meeting, a solo exhibition by Kuras & MacKenzie. The exhibition’s opening reception will take place on Sunday, March 17 from 3-6pm, and the show runs through Saturday, April 27, 2019.
Christian Kuras and Duncan MacKenzie have been collaborating on art projects since 2004. With humor, irony, and disarming sincerity, the works in Kuras & MacKenzie’s 2001 Annual Meeting collectively address ideas of landscape and nostalgia for spaces that signify home, our given place in the world, and related notions of citizenship. The duo’s diverse output have taken the form of prints, drawings, sculptures, and mixed media objects. In this exhibition, the artists put forth questions relating to “the solidity of certain ideas about our relationship to the social contract, our relationship to government, and our relationship to the things we were promised as citizens” in ways that incite further questions rather than propose definitive answers. In a broader sense, 2001 Annual Meeting is also about the push-and-pull of collaboration and commitment, about what it means to collectively participate in acts of creation, production, and authorship, and the attendant tensions, negotiations, discoveries, and mutual camaraderie that result from longtime creative partnerships.
