Fine Art Chair Kristi Hargrove debuts a solo show at nearby Vanderbilt University and its Space 204 Gallery. The show, Don’t Slam the Door, “merges aspects of daily experiences, of physical and sensory relationships, with a self-effacing reflection on being an embodied human in this world,” writes the artist.
Hargrove has been teaching at the collegiate level for more than 20 years. She received her BA from Vanderbilt University and her MFA from Vermont College of Fine Art. With an interest in philosophy and literature, Hargrove’s work considers the physical and psychological places of seepage—between language, bodies, and relationships. She is a founding member of the artist collective Coop, a curatorial group made up of artists, curators, thinkers, and professors who are committed to expanding Nashville’s dialogue with contemporary art. Her work has been shown in numerous juried shows and invitational exhibitions nationally and internationally.
There will be a closing reception of the show on August 29, from 4-6 p.m.
