kendallprojects HEAD TRAUMA: From the Outer Rim

701 CCA Center for Contemporary Art presents kendallprojects HEAD TRAUMA: From the Outer Rim May 23 – July 7.  In this exhibition, kendallprojects, the name under which Jason Kendall presents his art, incorporates drawing, painting, sculpture and performance. The exhibition addresses American football culture by exploring themes of identity construction, masculinity, violence in sports and conditional self-worth based on physical performance. The artist is not only a spectator but also a critical analyst, distancing himself from the self-destructive nature exhibited by many athletes. Artist talk and reception May 23.
