Special Event

Kevin Beasley // Christina Galasso // Nate Morgan

Opening Reception: SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 6-9:00 PM

Runs through SEPTEMBER  18, 2010

Kevin Beasley (b. 1985, Lynchburg, VA) received his BFA from Detroit’s College for Creative studies (CCS) in 2007. Shortly thereafter he co-founded, CAVE, an artist run gallery located in the Russell Industrial Center. His work is been exhibited in group shows throughout Michigan. He is currently an MFA candidate in sculpture at Yale University.

Christina Galasso (b. 1983, Detroit, MI) graduated from CCS in 2008, with a minor in Art History & Photography. She has exhibited her work in group shows at the Oakland University Art Gallery and the Johanson Charles Gallery in Detroit.

Nate Morgan (b. 1980, Detroit, MI) graduated with a BFA from the CCS in 2007 and is currently Exhibitions Director at CAVE. His art has been exhibited throughout Michigan. In 2009, he worked as a sculpture assistant to Matthew Barney on the prologue for the yet unreleased film “Ancient Evenings”.

Each artist prepared new work in response to the exhibition theme, many specifically focusing on time or the passage thereof. The resulting collage, photography, sculpture and video depict metonymic (stand-in) devices for the conceptuality of sustaining oneself or individual environments paycheck to paycheck.
