Ryan Lauderdale included in two person exhibition at Kansas gallery

Ryan Lauderdale (B.F.A. Studio Art and B.A. Art History, 2005) has been included in a two person exhibition at Kansas gallery. The exhibition was spotlighted in Art in America.

In response to Lauderdale's work, critic and artist Megan Liu Kincheloe (B.F.A. Studio Art, 2009), in ArtSlant, wrote:

his work slips between associations of Modernist furniture and architecture into other realms where similar codes have been borrowed and particularized such as the aspirational marketing of exercise equipment, transcendental meditation, and the faux-fancy gaudiness common to cheap casinos and strip clubs. His combination of design nostalgia with minimal art just works. It amounts to a precisely observed American Mannerism that is simultaneously earnest and cheeky.

The exhibition will be on display through August 2, 2014 at Kansas gallery (New York).
