Lauren Fueyo & Kristine Rumman: Y, Y, Y, How, How, How

Friday, March 6, 2020 – Sunday, April 12, 2020
Presented in Gallery One

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION

Y, Y, Y, How, How, How is a collaborative exhibition by artists Lauren Fueyo and Kristine Rumman. This exhibition brings Rumman’s glass background and sensitivity to architecture together with Fueyo’s tragicomic storytelling.

Set in a forest-like environment, long-legged branch-beings strain to use their tools including wheels, stoppers, and occasionally, the hint of an arm. Two-way reflective heads loom above and mirror back to pools of water slowly evaporating on the ground below. Music stands mark the space, each holding documents that share a different stick-related warning.

This exhibition is a departure from Rumman’s past work that anchors itself in factual elements of her familial history in Palestine. Fueyo, who has recently focused on comedy performances, continues her wrestling against the dogmatic through new material and sound investigations alongside Rumman in this installation.

Kristine Rumman is an artist and educator. Her interdisciplinary practice is migratory, situationally responsive and inextricably linked to the geopolitics of the sites where she has lived. Her work often investigates the possibilities of what art can do that politics cannot. Rumman completed an MFA from Tyler School of Art & Architecture. She is the recipient of The Velocity Fund through Temple Contemporary and The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, the Laurie Wagman Prize in Glass, and recognition from the Glass Arts Society, who named her a top Emerging International Talent and a 2019 Saxe Emerging Artist. Most recently, Rumman has been awarded a collaboration with Pilkington NSG, a global glass manufacturer, to actualize her project debuting in Fall 2020 at the Center for Visual Arts on the campus of the Toledo Museum of Art.
