The Institute of Contemporary Art Baltimore Presents: "More Doing" by Kirk Amaral Snow
Image: Search For Ourselves (working detail)
Steel Stud, Speed Square, and Clamp
66″ x 39″ x 30"
16 West North Ave
Baltimore, MD 21218
The Office of Graduate Studies and Research is pleased to announce our very own Kirk Amaral Snow's solo exhibition!
Exhibition Dates: November 9 to December 9, 2018
Special Event: Just Comfortable Enough, Saturday, December 8, 7pm
During the final weekend of the exhibition, Amaral Snow will situate his body alongside functional objects developed while making work for More Doing. The performance plays with Donald Judd's writings on furniture, using the artist's body to highlight issues in design and function.
Open Hours: Saturdays and Sundays 12-4pm
For the last decade, Kirk Amaral Snow has developed a body of work that investigates the relationship between the built world and performative aspects of culture. Drawing on an immediacy inherited from the DIY Punk scene, he makes simple, poetic objects that reference encounters with vernacular building as a contrast to highly crafted design.
With More Doing, Amaral Snow digs deeper into the language of home-center improvement projects and YouTube “Do-It-Yourself” design. Displaying gestures and materials that echo and repeat, the works in the exhibition reveal a process of iteration and experimentation often absent from polished media representations of “making”.

4:00pm – 5:30pm
Growing up in a rural, working-class town in Upstate New York, Nancy Shaver was drawn to making compositions of ordinary, unpretentious materials and objects. Her abstract compositions disregard distinctions between utility and decoration, as well as mass culture, craft, and fine art, underlining both the hierarchical boundaries dividing these categories and their permeability. Shaver received a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant in 1993, an Anonymous Was a Woman Award in 2008, and a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2010. Shaver was part of the 2017 Biennale di Venezia and, in 2018 at the National Gallery in Washington, DC, her work was featured in Outliers and American Vanguard Art.
