Broad curator Alison Gass hosts a tour of Kristin Cammermeyer's 'Resituating'


Alison Gass, curator of contemporary art for the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum, hosts a free tour of Kristin Cammermeyer’s “Resituating” exhibition at 7 p.m. Thursday,  July 12 at the Broad Art Museum´s Summer Annex, 226 E. Grand River Ave. in Lansing´s Old Town (formerly the home of The Chrome Cat).

The tour will be a curatorial talk-through, with Gass explaining her interpretation of Cammermeyer’s work. 

“People can learn what the art is about, instead of just seeing it,” Gass said. By knowing the journey of the exhibition and artist, Gass says she hopes to provide the viewer with a more complete experience. 

“Resituating” features pieces made from leftover construction materials that are not traditionally used in contemporary painting and sculpture, such as plywood, industrial paint and spray foam insulation. Cammermeyer’s show runs through July 22. 

Tour space is limited and pre-registration is required. To register, visit cammermeyertour.eventbrite.com.
