Adam Cvijanovic: American Montage

May 15–September 20, 2015

Kemper Museum

American Montage draws on Brooklyn-based artist Adam Cvijanovic’s merging of influences from nineteenth-century American landscape painting and twentieth-century cinematic techniques. The exhibition features installations and paintings on his signature Tyvek surfaces from the past fifteen years. Cvijanovic’s methods of fracturing, cutting, layering, and sequencing imagery to collapse space, time, and narrative demonstrate a montage of American visual perspective. The exhibition premiers three new works: Flint Hills (2015), inspired by the artist’s site visit in fall 2014; The Fall (Capri) (2015), Cvijanovic’s first work to include a soundtrack; and Hollywood and Sunset (2014–15), his reintroduction of the figure in almost a decade.
