Dave Kennedy: A Stranger Stands Here

July 21, 2017 - October 8, 2017

Questioning our perceptions of others and ourselves, Dave Kennedy creates striking installations comprised of photocopies, constructions, and cast off materials. Kennedy engages viewers with seemingly mundane imagery that is both playful and visually deceptive. For his installation A Stranger Stands Here, Kennedy reimagines the neglected back alleys and building remnants of derelict, urban spaces as metaphors for overcoming “otherness.”  Drawing upon themes of race, ethnicity and stereotypes, the artist questions our attempts to simply categorize and objectify identity through a single perspective or outward appearance.
