Thanks to all who came out to hear Kit Kube lecture on his kinetic sculpture Scree Riding with Alamente, the piece in his installation Turbulent Trajectories. Those who attended were lucky enough to see the artist toy with his piece and manipulate it in ways they hadn’t seen before.
Kit had great things to say about the short tradition of kinetic sculpture and it’s place here in Charlotte (he once restored the Tinguely piece in the lobby of uptown’s Carillon building). It was very interesting to see the way the artist interacted with his own piece, revealing a versatility in presentation that cannot be acquired through most art works.
We hope you join us for our next artist lecture by Amy Bagwell, at noon in Ross Gallery on May 2.
