Kansas City, MO – "Settlement"
August 14, 2009-March 28, 2010
Kemper Museum

According to the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art's website: "At some point, the organic curves of nature invariably run up against the hard edges of humanity. Whether seen as progress or destruction, that encounter becomes a signpost of the pioneer spirit in humankind and marks a contrast between the manufactured and the natural. The seven artists whose works come together in Settlement have chosen this point of overlap, the transition point between natural and manufactured, as their subject."

Produced in collaboration with KCUR 89.3 FM, Kemper ARTcasts is the Kemper Museum's podcast series. This project brings the voices and insights of artists, as well as community and curatorial voices, to a broad range of listeners.
