CIA Faculty Member Opens Show at Akron Art Museum

Sarah Kabot's exhibition Unfolding Space challenges perception by altering a physical environment in the Akron Art Museum.

CIA Faculty Member Opens Show at Akron Art Museum

Experience an image you can walk into, as Cleveland Institute of Art Assistant Professor Sarah Kabot opens her exhibition Unfolding Space at the Akron Art Museum on February 12, 2011.

In Unfolding Space, Kabot replicates the lights, floorboards, and wall surfaces of the museum’s Judith Bear Isroff Gallery and then use these objects to both deconstruct and reconfigure the space. Her installation is made up of more than 300 paper lights installed along the walls of the gallery. “The architecture of the museum’s new building is extraordinary and it is a real honor to show in this space,” says Kabot.

Unfolding Space is running in conjunction with the museum’s exhibition M.C. Escher: Impossible Realities, and according to Kabot, Escher’s tessellations and the ephemeral quality of his work inspired her exhibition.

Kabot is a prolific artist, whose work challenges perception by altering physical environments. Recently she has shown throughout the country at several galleries in New York City, at the Museum of Contemporary Art and the Sculpture Center in Cleveland, and at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts. She is currently Assistant Professor and Drawing Department Head at the Cleveland Institute of Art.

The exhibition was made possible by generous support provided to the museum by CIA board member Fran Belkin and her husband Jules Belkin, as well as Harris • Stanton Gallery, which is owned by CIA board member Meg Harris Stanton.
