Art depicting space, space travel coming to The Modern in January

🕐 1 min read

Art depicting space and space travel — including a robotic piece that talks and sings — will be on display at The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, 3200 Darnell Street, beginning next month.

An exhibit featuring work by modern artist Glenn Kaino will run at The Modern from Jan. 30-April 17. The exhibit is part of the museum’s FOCUS series, which highlights a specific artist and showcases a collection of his or her work. The museum hosts three FOCUS exhibits each year.

The Kaino exhibit will include new works like L’ènetènafionale (2015), which depicts nineteenth-century French character Pierrot sitting on a crescent moon. The piece is animatronic and can move, talk and sing.

Kaino’s artistic style is similar to “kitbashing,” a technique in which a person takes parts of a model kit and, rather than following the instructions of the kit, builds something different. One of Kaino’s works, Tank (2014), is made of seven aquarium tanks with coral growing inside.

Kaino, a Los Angeles native, is a graduate of the University of California at Irvine and University of California at San Diego. His work has appeared at numerous museums around the world, including the Blanton Museum of Art in Austin, the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney, Australia.

Information on The Modern’s admission pricing can be found on the museum’s website. http://themodern.org/
