"New, Two," the 2004 KCAI faculty biennial exhibition featured new work, ranging in media, by eight recently appointed faculty members at the Kansas City Art Institute.  Site-specific installations and individual works incorporated video, sound, fiber, photography, painting, printmaking, and performance.

Artists included: Laura Berman, Rebecca Dolan, Russell Ferguson, Andrea Flamini, Carolyn Kallenborn, Brett Reif, DeAnna Skedel, and Michael Wickerson.

In conjunction with the exhibition, a series of noon-time presentations at the Artspace (Artspace: TNT Fridays) highlighted specific areas of study and research by recently appointed liberal arts faculty members, Dr. Maria Elena Buszek and Dr. Suzanne Gott.  Dr. Buszek discussed her publication, “pin-up Grrrls: Feminism, sexuality, and popular culture” on September 24, and Dr. Gott presented a discussion entitled “Asante Funerals: The Art of West African Performance” on October 15.

For generous support of the 2003-2004 exhibition series at the Artspace, the Kansas City Art Institute gratefully acknowledges the Missouri Arts Council, a state agency, and the H&R Block Foundation.
