But If the Crime Is Beautiful…

The Rebecca Randall Bryan Art Gallery at Coastal Carolina University presents But If the Crime is Beautiful, an exhibition of works by Lauren Kalman, October 24th – November 18th. Kalyan combines functional and craft objects, sculpture, photography, video, installation and performance. Her work brings to light uncomfortable connections in visual culture between body image, media, class and style. Kalman’s recent work has utilized a sterile aesthetic borrowed from modernism combined with adornment and the female body. Fabricated objects that reflect sculptural ornamentation and adornment are combined with the body and design objects to produce photographs. A reception is scheduled for October 27th from 4:30 – 6:30 p.m.¬†Gallery hours are Monday – Friday, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. Free.
