Kit Kube - Critical Mass, GCAC Main Gallery

CSUF Grand Central Art Center will host North Carolina artist Kit Kube in the GCAC Main Gallery. Critical Mass is a kinetic interactive light installation featuring eight interactive works by the artist.

"Just as the Surrealist artists at the beginning of the twentieth century incorporated machine parts and imagery to document the pervasiveness of the Industrial Age, Kit Kube forms sculptures from the detritus of southern junkyards to mark the closure of American industrialism and the development of a new order... These industrial components, once animated within textile mills, become reactivated by Kube with small motors or hand-generated kinetic motion. Adding illumination, Kube sculpts with light that perforates grids, circuit boards, and filters to project fine, patterned webbing that envelops viewers as they enter these environments." (Carla M. Hanzal, Curator of Contemporary Art the Mint Museums, Charlotte, NC)

Kube was selected to be the 25th artist in residence at the Grand Central Art Center. He will be our guest artist from January 26th through February 25th.  An artist lecture is being planned and will be posted on our website under events at <http://www.grandcentralartcenter.com>. Critical Mass marks Kit Kube's first west coast solo exhibition.
