WENDY KAWABATA – KCAD ARTPRIZE!
Associate Professor Wendy Kawabata is among the selected artists featured in KCAD’s (Kendall College of Art and Design) Artprize “I AM: Money Matters”.
Going beyond conventional explorations of identity, I AM is a three-part exhibition series that deftly walks the tension between internal and external perceptions of self. The first installment, Money Matters—KCAD’s 2014 ArtPrize exhibition—raises bold questions about currency, consumption, and value in exploring their influence on human beings, our emotions, and our understanding of the world around us.
