POKE: A Series of Provocations by Debby and Larry Kline
Exhibit features installation work by artist team Debby and Larry Kline. (2013 San Diego Art Prize Winners)
Exhibit runs from August 26 – September 26, 2013
Reception: 5 – 7 pm Gallery D101 and Gallery Courtyard
Artist Lecture: 7 pm in G101
The gallery will be filled with artistic “provocations” by this husband and wife artist team. Featuring works from their series “The Age of Enlightenment”, “The Candy Store” and “My Dinner with the Klines”; topics will range from religion and conflict, to healthcare issues to playful creativity while dining out.
“We use our art to make people think differently. We pose provocative questions, challenge preconceptions and generally screw with context to make a point. Humor softens the blow.”
Debby and Larry Kline are collaborative artists, whose works have been featured in many solo exhibitions, including Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts (San Francisco), California Center for the Arts Museum, La Casa del Tunel Art Center (Tijuana) and Athenaeum Arts Library. At an international level, their work was featured at the Museum on the Seam (Israel).
They were recently awarded the 2013 San Diego Art Prize which recognizes the work of some of the most accomplished artists in the San Diego region. They will also be featured artists at the Art San Diego 2013 Contemporary Art Fair.
