Their renowned artist parents are exhibiting alongside them. Future Planets features drawing, paintings, sculptures, videos, and installations created both individually and collaboratively by:
The House We Build is an exhibition about family and a family exhibition that invites visitors to witness their intergenerational conversations through the art that emerges as a result of their dialogue. When James’s daughter, Indigo, was about three she began to ask her father questions about life. They would talk to each other about their experiences, which are reflected in their respective artwork. Years later, younger sister Zoe joined these evolving conversations.
The LCVA’s newest exhibition, Take Care by Kerri Cushman and Laura Oertel, is a collaboration created in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and is on view through January 3, 2021. Amidst the uncertainties at the beginning of the pandemic, Cushman and Oertel worked together to make sense of the quickly changing landscape. Their work invites the viewer to consider questions of safety and protection, and is rooted in community.
