Sarah McKenzie’s work captures architecture in transition. Her work has depicted hotel rooms and parking garages, spaces that are specifically designed to accommodate the temporary; spaces that are fluid rather than fixed. Along these lines, her newest body of work focuses on exhibition spaces–the architecture of museums and galleries.
McKenzie’s work has been exhibited at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh, the Yale School of Architecture, the New Mexico Museum of Art, and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver. In 2012, she received a Joan Mitchell Painters and Sculptors Grant. A former professor at Cleveland Institute of Art, she now works fulltime in her studio in Boulder, Colorado. She is represented by the David B. Smith Gallery in Denver.
This exhibition is supported by Centaur Gaming
