Current Exhibit

"Made/Making"

The Kansas City Kansas Community College Art Gallery presents exhibition “Made/Making”.

Made/Making is a dynamic exhibition unifying various mediums, modalities, and artmakers to create a dialogue between identity, fabrication, and perception.  

The exhibition opens March 18th in the KCKCC Art Gallery at Kansas City Kansas Community College. The show will run until May 3rd, with a reception on April 23 from 4:30 to 7 pm. 

Made/Making peers into microsystems that dictate the complexities of material-based relationships that inform the human experience. Selected works by Zero Space Collective members, Heather Baumbach, Lauren Bradshaw, Brooke Day, Amalya Megerman, Ashley Rabanal, Jessica Swank, and guest artist, Kammy Kennelley-Downs, culminate to give perspective on systems of oppression, cultural importance, domestic disenchantment, community building, and conditional evolution, all through the guise of materiality, craft, and other dynamic expressions of creating. 

Zero Space Collective currently consists of six artists across the eastern coast. Each artist comes from assorted backgrounds and utilizes various modes of making. The unifying force of Zero Space Collective, in an interest in making space, building  community, and offering resources for marginalized and new artists.  The collective began during the 2020 Covid-19 outbreak in an effort to combat the displacement of quarantine. Today the collective is working to achieve nonprofit status in order to provide more support to a larger area. You can support the efforts of Zero Space Collective by visiting the Made/Making  exhibition, joining their mailing list, and visiting their website to learn more.
