Gallery 210 presents
Basil Kincaid: Gates
Opening February 24, 2018
Artist lecture: 4pm-5pm
Artist reception: 5pm – 7pm
Gallery 210 is pleased to present the new installation work “Gates” by St. Louis based artist Basil Kincaid. “Gates” is a site-specific piece employing the traditional folk art of quilting with contemporary art practices such as assemblage, installation and performance to create an environment that explores notions of cultural lineage, social tensions, economic degradation and social constructs.
A reception for the exhibition “Basil Kincaid: Gates”, will be held Saturday, February 24, 2018 with a slide lecture by the artist starting at 4pm. A reception for the artist follows from 5 to 7pm.
Basil Kincaid received his Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art in 2009 from Colorado College in Colorado Springs. He has worked extensively with BlankSpace in St. Louis, Missouri, from participating in exhibitions to planning “Cherokee Reach Street”, a free Youth art camp. In 2016 he was a Guest Speaker for Harvard Graduate School of Education’s Arts in Education Program exhibition. Basil was the receiver of the Arts Connect International Artist in Residence Grant, in which he did his residency in Ghana. His recent work has been called “R3clamation”, an extension of his work he did in Ghana.
This exhibition is made possible through the generous support of the Missouri Arts Council, a state agency, The College of Arts and Sciences and the Center for the Humanities at the University of Missouri-St. Louis.
