Kiel Johnson at Cypress College Art Gallery (CA)

Gallery artist Kiel Johnson is part of “Artists on Edge”, a group show at Cypress College Art Gallery curated by Mat Gleason.

From the press release:

The exhibit centers on the work and influence of the late Chris Burden who passed away earlier this year at the age of 69. Gleason posits that Burden’s penchant for finding the edge of every medium he touched was where his greatest influence occurred. Assembled here are historic works by Burden and nine contemporary artists, each with a debt to Burden and yet also finding a unique way to push their specific visual art mediums to the edge of what is possible.

Instead of tying these artists together, the exhibit seeks to show that the schools of thought embraced by Chris Burden were, like Burden’s art, unruly tentacles that stretch and threaten. The intensity of what one contemporary master created is shown to live on and grow into new forms of art.
