Contemporary Art Museum, St Louis
September 16 - December 31, 2016

In September 2016, CAM will present the first US survey exhibition of multidisciplinary artist Kelley Walker. Georgia-born and New York–based, Walker leverages issues of identity politics and social constructs to unpack American pop culture. Culling imagery from sources including contemporary print advertising and canonical post-war artworks, he interrogates the ways a single image can migrate into any number of cultural contexts.

Walker’s exhibition will be installed in the entirety of the museum, including the outdoor courtyard, lobby, and all traditional gallery spaces. The exhibition features many of Walker’s major bodies of work, including his Black Star Press Series, CD-ROM Works, Recycling Series, Brick Paintings, and Volkswagen Series, questioning the ways alteration and assimilation play into the image-saturated American quotidian, celebrity culture, and our visual vernacular at large.
