Courtney Kemp, MFA in Craft and Material Studies Lead Faculty, Solo show at Platte Forum


Reception: Thursday, February 2nd, 2017; 6-8pm

PlatteForum is pleased to announce the exhibition Glisten of Pavement, Sparkle of Doubt with a free, public reception at PlatteForum, 2400 Curtis Street in Denver.

Developed by PlatteForum’s third Resident Artist of the season, Glisten of Pavement, Sparkle of Doubt is a new exhibition that explores concepts of youth, action, and consequence. Incorporating defunct neon, false traffic and construction signage along with lipstick and other gendered elements, this new work seeks to investigate one’s experience of how to become cognizant of the realities and potentials of our world.
