Exhibition - Brad Kahlhamer: A Nation Of One

Saturday, Aug 10, 2019 at 11:00am

Minnesota Museum of American Art
350 Robert Street North
Saint Paul, MN 55101

Minnesota Museum of American Art is proud to present A Nation of One, a survey exhibition of work by New York-based multimedia artist Brad Kahlhamer. His large-scale paintings, drawings, and works on paper map the sprawling complexities and contradictions of American culture and identity. Notable influences include Abstract Expressionism, graphic styles from Gary Painter, Art Spiegelman, Henry Darger, and the artist’s ongoing study of Plains Indians’ graphic arts. His work is also informed by his personal Native American, but “tribally ambiguous” heritage. A Nation of One charts Kahlhamer’s evolution of styles across American and Native identities, speaking to his adopted and inherited genealogy of symbols and characters, reiterating his persistent questions about hybridity, cultural appropriation, and representation.
