All Is Vanity
Angie Seykora & Dan Crane
March 3-April 23, 2017
ALL IS VANITY is an intersection of the work and studio practices of Angie Seykora and Dan Crane. In their first shared exhibition, Omaha-based artists Seykora and Crane showcase a new collaborative series exploring themes of re-purposed material culture, craft-based approaches to making, and the oversaturation of a twenty-first century “memento mori.” Seykora, who is influenced by the inherent characteristics and physical qualities of manufactured materials, gives new perspective to Crane’s work, which infuses a do-it-yourself aesthetic to overused icons in pop-culture, in particular clichéd skull imagery.
In a seemingly playful yet diligent manner, ALL IS VANITY encourages a second look at materials and symbols far too often dismissed, framing our everyday realities.
ALL IS VANITY is organized by the Omaha Public Library and curated by Alex Priest.
