Join us for an artist talk by Kennedy Browne, a collaboration of Irish artists Gareth Kennedy and Sarah Browne, presented as the opening event of the exhibition Kennedy Browne: The Special Relationship.

Based in Dublin and working together since 2005, Kennedy Browne's videos, workshops, and sculptural installations have probed common stories of global capital: the effects on workers of relocating companies, the visionary boyhood narratives of tech company founders, and struggles over privacy in the age of the internet. The Special Relationship is Kennedy Browne's first US Museum survey.

Krannert Art Museum exhibitions are made possible in part by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. Kennedy Browne: The Special Relationship is co-sponsored by Culture Ireland and the European Union Center at the University of Illinois.

This artist talk is sponsored in part by the Frances P. Rohlen Visiting Artists Fund/College of Fine and Applied Arts and the School of Art + Design Visitors Committee.

An opening reception will follow this event.
