Join ArtTable for the next MeetAT at the Headlands Center for the Arts. During this once-a-season summer open house at Headlands, ArtTable members and guests will have the opportunity to visit the studios of current artists in residence. We also will have the chance to meet artists Rodney Ewing and Kori Newkirk, and view their works in progress as part of the Summer Project Space studios.

Meet Donna Napper at 12:00pm in the Mess Hall Cafe. Look for the red ArtTable tote bag!

San Francisco-based artist Rodney Ewing delves into a host of references to explore the topic of race in his new body of work, The Devil Finds Work. Illuminating personal stories and memories, he draws on the Green-Book, the story of H. Box Brown (a slave who shipped himself to freedom), and recent accounts of state-supported violence against African Americans. Ewing’s installations and works on paper chronicle how the Black Body has had to evolve to move through physical, social, and psychological spaces in the United States, and the continued resilience and defiance required to survive.

Rodney Ewing’s drawings, installations, and mixed media works focus on his need to intersect body and place, memory and fact to re-examine human histories, cultural conditions, and events. With his work he is pursuing a narrative that requires us to be present and intimate. His work has been exhibited at Euphrat Museum of Art, Cupertino, CA; The Drawing Center, New York, NY; and in San Francisco, CA at Root Division, Jack Fischer Gallery, San Francisco Art Commission Gallery, Nancy Toomey Fine Art, Alter Space Gallery, and Ictus Projects. He has been an Artist-in-Residence at Recology and the De Young Museum of Fine Arts both in San Francisco, as well as Djerassi in Woodside, California. Ewing received his BFA in Printmaking from Louisiana State University and his MFA in Printmaking from West Virginia University.

For Kori Newkirk (AIR ’19), “the idea dictates the material.” Pony beads, hair pomade, bicycle tires, tin cans, his own sweat and saliva—the artist has used them all. Whimsical yet thought-provoking, his sculptures and two-dimensional visual works transform everyday materials to elucidate the human condition, delving especially into ideas of racialized identity and their connection to place. During his residency, he will investigate the environment in and around Headlands, incorporating locally found objects to create a new work.

Kori Newkirk (born 1970) received his BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1993 and his MFA from the University of California, Irvine in 1997. He has had solo exhibitions at the Studio Museum in Harlem, LAXART and the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego. Notable group exhibitions include the 2006 Whitney Biennial, DAK’ART (the Dakar Biennial, Senegal, 2006), and the traveling exhibition, “Uncertain States of America” (2005-6). Newkirk’s work is in the collections of the Hammer Museum, MCA Chicago, MOCA Los Angeles, the Art Institute of Chicago, Henry Art Gallery (Seattle) and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA).

**carpooling is highly recommended to this venue.
