Found in Translation: Explorations by 8 Contemporary Artists,
October 8, 2022 – August 20, 2023
We often hear of the risks of losing meaning in translation. But visual artists are skilled at converting ideas and questions into art. Found in Translation: Explorations by 8 Contemporary Artists reveals the richness and nuance that can be discovered through this process of change and transformation.
The art in Found in Translation is informed but not defined by artists’ individual experiences with immigration from places across Asia to the Kansas City region. It reflects their perspectives on the world and their places in it, shaped through a range of styles and media. These eight artists use their practices to explore evolving personal questions tied to place, memory, relationships, and other complex topics.
Found in Translation is the second exhibition in the Nelson-Atkins initiative KC Art Now, which celebrates the talent of local artists.
