Current Exhibition

Places I Sleep
An exhibition of photographs by Sarah Berkeley

Gallery Reception: Thursday, November 19th, 5 to 7 p.m.
On view: November 9th through December 18, 2015

The Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts is proud to present a series of new photographs by Sarah Berkeley entitled, “Places I Sleep.” The in-progress series is themed around the interior spaces that the artist has inhabited for at least one night. Berkeley, an assistant professor at Nebraska Wesleyan University, has exhibited frequently in Nebraska, as well as nationally and internationally. Her work frequently questions cultural norms such as the 9:00 to 5:00 work day, the office environment, indoor living, gender stereotypes, and the voluntary sharing of personal data. Regarding her new photographic series on display at KHN, Berkeley states, “outward looking views alternate with contemplative images of ceilings, speaking to domestic space as both confining and a portal for spirituality.”

Sarah Berkeley is an artist who works across media creating public interventions and durational performances which she documents using photography, video and GPS. She holds an MFA from University of Michigan (2011) and a BFA from University of Nebraska-Lincoln (2002). She has completed residencies at the Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts, The Ragdale Foundation, Vermont Studio Center, ACRE, the Cedar Point Biological Station and 8550 OHIO. Her artwork has been collected and exhibited internationally including the Joslyn Museum of Art, Defibrillator Gallery, Rapid Pulse, Rutgers University, and Mana Contemporary.

Please join us for a reception with the artist on Thursday, November 19th from 5 – 7 pm.
