The SCAD Museum of Art has five new exhibitions on view for its Fall 2020 season, showcasing international artists Guo Fengyi, Emily Mae Smith, Edgar Sanchez Cumbas, KAYA, and a group exhibition curated by Sam Bardaouil and Till Fellrath. The dynamic work by these artists and the exhibitions they’re in reflect many of SCAD’s top-ranked degree programs including photography, illustration, drawing, film & television, sculpture, and fibers.
The new exhibitions for Fall 2020 are:
- Guo Fengyi: To See from a Distance, the first major institutional exhibition of the artist’s work in the US. Featuring more than 30 works from Guo’s brief yet prolific career, the exhibition provides an overview of her visionary drawings, which incorporate the diagrammatic, the mystical, and the wildly imaginative.
- Feast and Famine presents a selection of Emily Mae Smith’s paintings from the past five years that explore dichotomies in her work, with corporeality manifesting as either hard and slick or soft and sensual.
- No. This Is Not the Color of Flesh, presented in the SCAD Alumni Gallery, includes recent paintings and drawings by Edgar Sanchez Cumbas that demonstrate his varied approach to media. Sanchez Cumbas (BFA, Illustration, 1994) manipulates paint, found objects, and drawing in an expressive, non-objective art practice.
- Under_Ursus presents a new site-specific iteration of the collaborative duo KAYA’s OraKle Paintings in SCAD MOA’s exterior gallery, the Jewel Boxes. KAYA engages in the slippage between medium, site-specificity, and authorship: neither the artists, the location, nor the nature of this work is singular.
- I Put a Spell On You: On Artist Collaborations, a group exhibition organized by guest curators Sam Bardaouil and Till Fellrath, surveys 11 distinct models of collective practice, highlighting the complex, co-authored process of artistic production. It includes work by Eva & Adele, Harry Shunk and János Kender, Elmgreen & Dragset, Kahlil Joseph, Hesham Rahmanian and Rokni and Ramin Haerizadeh, GCC, Bárbara Wagner and Benjamin de Burca, Nadia Kaabi-Linke, Bianca Kennedy and Felix Krauss, and Reena Spaulings.
In addition to these openings, the museum has extended many of its spring and summer exhibitions, giving members and guests the opportunity to view compelling works by acclaimed international artists. These include Igshaan Adams’ exhibition Getuie, Charlie Billingham’s A Rake’s Progress, Shoplifter’s Chromo Zone, and Kenturah Davis’ Everything that Cannot Be Known.
