Often times, a visit to the Red Bull House of Art occurs on a busy night, making your way through the cavernous halls and the crowds to see the artwork. Curbed visited the gallery a week before their next exhibition to see the work in progress.
Artists Beau Stanton, Lala Abaddon, and Coby Kennedy have lived and worked in Eastern Market for the last three months in an art residency to prepare for this latest exhibit.
Stanton has been working on mosaics made from found objects. He gained inspiration from Detroit landmarks such as the Fisher and Guardian Buildings. He’ll have some larger installations weighing in at over 100 pounds, plus a maze/labyrinth floor installation.
Abaddon combines weaving, photography, and painting into optically immersive compositions. One of her pieces was partially completed, while another was in the early stages of assembly.
We couldn’t photograph Kennedy’s work yet, but the Brooklyn artist is known for his post-apocalyptic paintings, weapons-like sculptures, and video work. The work of all three artists is one of the largest, in size and scale, for Red Bull House of Art. Here’s a look at what we saw in our preview.
The exhibit opens to the public Friday, November 11 from 7-10pm. The gallery will be open on Saturdays 10-3.
