Immediately following the artist talk by Irish artists Gareth Kennedy and Sarah Browne, we hope you'll join us for the Opening Night Reception 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. We look forward to opening The Special Relationship with the artists, museum members, students, faculty, friends and colleagues. The exhibition is organized by Amy L. Powell, curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, with research assistance from Alyssa Bralower, doctoral student in Art History. The exhibition 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. The 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.
