 Past Exhibition

Nomads: Traversing Adolescence

February 26–November 15, 2013

Kemper East

link see past exhibition gallery link see current exhibition gallery    

This exhibition explores the theme of adolescence with its myriad dimensions, including the desire for growth and change coupled with a lack of autonomy; a budding understanding of the world's capricious nature coupled with a profound vulnerability. The works in this exhibition, selected from the Kemper Museum's permanent collection, capture this tension and compel the viewer to consider the physical and temporal characteristics of adolescence. Works by Lalla Essaydi, Chuck Forsman, Henriette Wyeth, and Stephen Scott Young are among the artists featured.

This exhibition was curated by Erin McNeil, a graduate student at Savannah College of Art and Design and former curatorial intern at the Kemper Museum.
