This exhibition features the work of two recent Hampshire College alums. Their current drawings and sculpture are made in relation to the use of found objects and materials. By transforming discarded vessels and beer advertisements, their work is linked to contemporary culture, sustainability, and the history of the found object in art. Kamil Peters will exhibit work from his longstanding series of welded sculptural masks, made from fragments of discarded propane cylinders. Peters’s imagery combines his response to sources in African sculpture with contemporary concerns around race, identity, and social justice. Justin Norris works across sculpture, printmaking, drawing, graffiti, and dance. Norris’s project encompasses dozens of drawings he has made in reaction to images on cardboard beer coasters collected from around the world.
