CATCHING UP: more Art Basel with Kesh
More to celebrate: Young talented artist Kesh just held an exhibit during Art Basel Miami Beach 2013 entitled W@WW ( W/HAT @RE W/E W/ORSHIPPING?). Some familiar and fabulous friends that came out to support included Raekwon, Theophilus London, Mykki Blanco, Leo Velasquez, Jordan Watson, Shaun Ross, Shayne Olivier (Hood By Air), Telfar Clemons, and Omahyra Mota.
Kesh is best known for her collaborative work with American Apparel with her graphic blasted all over tights and other clothing. PROJECT KITT is an exploration of the effects of mass media on the human mind; a combination of visuals and sound that offer the questions: WHAT ARE WE WORSHIPPING, WHO ARE WE WORSHIPING, WHY ARE WE WORSHIPPING.
This led to an installment of her emotionally driven installments of work that has given her the accolade of a solo exhibit and the ability for us all to feast our eyes on the inside of her brilliant artistic work. You can call it bold, daring, and beautiful. But whatever you call it I’m sure this exhibit isn’t the last we will see of her work – we’re loving it. Written by Natalie Barry.
