Scott Kemp & Luther Konadu

Cool World 2

28 August - 3 October 2021

The film Cool World (1992, Dir. Ralph Bakshi) proposes a reality where cartoons (art) and humans exist in separate dimensions, where cartoons (art) are desperate to become a part of the human dimension.

 

The art collected in Cool World 2 uses architectural space to think about the communication of care.

Scott Kemp (b. 1991) is an artist from Vancouver, BC, unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh nations. He is temporarily based in Chicago, IL on the traditional territories of the people of the Council of Three Fires: the Ojibwe, Potawatomi, and Odawa. Solo exhibitions include Compositions with Coloured Light, Flux Gallery, Winnipeg (2017); Compositions with Toys and Tinted Glass, CSA Space, Vancouver (2017); An Upper-Middle Class Fantasy, After Hours, Vancouver (2017); Master and Apprentice, Lobster and Leaf, Duplex, Vancouver (2016). Group exhibitions include Schererstraße 10 (Institut für Alles Mögliche), Berlin, Germany (2017); Soil Gallery, Seattle, USA (2017); Flux Gallery, Winnipeg (2015) and 221a, Vancouver (2015). Kemp was a co-founder of Duplex Artists Society and is recipient of a University Fellowship from the Graduate School at Northwestern University (Evanston/Chicago, IL) where he is currently studying towards an MFA.
