ESTHER KIRSHENBAUM - MULTIMEDIA ARTIST
April 27TH—JUNE 7TH, 2023
THURSDAY, JUNE 1st, 2023 from 6-8 PM*
*Free and open to the public.
Esther Kirshenbaum is a multimedia artist who has maintained studios in both Ann Arbor, Michigan and Brooklyn, New York. Recent local exhibitions include the Detroit Institute of the Arts (DIA), Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD) in conjunction with the University of Michigan Taubman Faculty Art Science Project, 22 Huron, the Gutman Gallery, and Kerrytown Concert House. She was awarded a residency in New Mexico by Some Serious Business. In New York City, her work was included in Brooklyn Museum’s Go Brooklyn, The 3rd Ward, The Candy Factory, Ground Floor Gallery and she was commissioned to create a sculptural trellis for the Obama White House. Her work remains in collections including The University of Michigan, Beaumont Hospital, the Mayo Clinic and others.
The eclectic and transporting performances at the Kerrytown Concert House inspired this show, which features work spanning time and place, encompassing multimedia conversations with New York City and Buenos Aires, as well as the diverse ecosystems surrounding Ann Arbor. The rich variety of music in this space moved me to seek evocative contrasts in the work displayed here, art that is bright and subtle, frenetic and quiet, and includes encaustic, metalwork, collage, and monotypes.
