The Past Is Never Dead: Kristin Casaletto

Exhibition Website

May 6 2017 - Jul 30 2017

This exhibition shows the work of contemporary Georgia-based artist Kristin Casaletto, primarily her prints and one three-dimensional object. Casaletto’s work addresses issues of history and how it is interpreted as well as questions related to identity and race. A relative newcomer to the South, she approaches its complex history from the perspective of an outsider without marginalizing its culture. The title of the exhibition comes from William Faulkner’s famous statement “The past is never dead. It's not even past.” Casaletto similarly focuses on the importance and influence of history in shaping present mindsets.
