Kavi Gupta presents the next edition of In Conversation, featuring Michael Joo and Charles Gaines on the occasion of EXPO Chicago and the closing of Sensory Meridian, Joo's exhibition at Kavi Gupta | Elizabeth St. Focusing on nature, transmission, representation, and systems, the two will discuss Joo's exhibition and the thematic cross sections between their respective oeuvres.
Sensory Meridian features a series of new sculptures of disincarnate body parts, alchemized from scans of historical works in the Smithsonian Archives, exploring the prior mentioned issues of representation, and transmission–making the exhibition fertile ground for discussion.
