SITE Seeing is a multidisciplinary exhibition connecting artists from Kansas City, Chicago, Portland, New York, and Los Angeles who are working at the intersections of architecture, site-specificity, abstraction, and perception. The ten artists and architects bridge geographies, philosophies, and material conditions to expand the meanings of space and address how identity and content is formed through this research.  

The exhibition layout listens to the defining characteristics of the room – intersecting planes and edges, sight lines, passages, and proportions –  to understand the correlation of space and image.  In the gallery and across the facade of the Charlotte Street, viewers encounter structural, queer, architectural, emotional, and interactive understandings of site – at times the scale of a book page and others monumental.  The overall installation broadens dialogues beyond the practice and appropriation of architectural aesthetics, arriving at outcomes with conceptual cross-over. The presentation is both structurally unified and unfolding, underlining the idea that all manners of art-making are an act of construction.

Featuring Corey Antis (Kansas City), Avantika Bawa (Portland), Dan Devening (Chicago), Marcie Miller Gross (Kansas City), Mie Kongo (Chicago), Cybele Lyle (Los Angeles), Armin Mühsam (Kansas City), Erin O’Keefe (New York), Christopher Spaw (Alma, KS), and Caleb Taylor (Kansas City)

Paper Folding Workshop with Caleb Taylor

Saturday, June 10 from 2:00-3:00 PM | Charlotte Street Kemper Library

Numerous artists featured in Charlotte Street’s upcoming exhibition SITE Seeing think about the model; as methods for building subject matter and planning installations. Growing out of sculptural methods he uses in his practice, Caleb Taylor will lead a workshop in modular paper folding with an emphasis on two and three-dimensional pattern-making. Following a discussion on the roles of model-making in the exhibition, participants will work together to create a site-specific intervention in the Kemper Library at Charlotte Street.
