Kerry Stuart Coppin
Between Me And The Other World
October 4 - 26
Kerry Stuart Coppin. Untitled: Bartender, Vietnamese Restaurant, Dakar, Senegal, 2000. Gicle´e print/pigment inkjet print, 32" x 40".
|Using digital photography, Kerry Stuart Coppin explores the impact
of international nongovernmental organizations (INGOs) in countries
described as "developing." His informed lens provides the viewer with a
reinterpretation of societies of the Diaspora that celebrate their
divergent cultural and traditional values, and at the same time come to
grips with the geopolitics of living in a postmodern world. Coppin's
image-making is rooted in the narrative tradition, while his use of new
media plays a vital role in an aesthetic that seeks to contextualize the
visual reexamination of the Diaspora.
Coppin's international exhibition record comprises more than 150 venues, including the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University, Art Institute of Chicago, and Brooklyn Museum of Art. His photographs are held in the collections of the African American Museum in Philadelphia, Bibliothe`que Nationale de France, Smithsonian American Art Museum, and the West African Research Center in Dakar, Senegal, among others.
Kerry Stuart Coppin. Untitled: Bartender, Vietnamese Restaurant, Coppin is currently an associate professor of art at Brown University. In cooperation with the Office of the Dean, Faculty of Arts and Sciences, this exhibition is supported by a larger campus discussion examining the role and impact of INGOs.
