21c Museum to Unveil Three Never Before Exhibited Pieces by Simen Johan


LOUISVILLE, KY.- 21c Museum will unveil three pieces by Simen Johan that have never before been on public view in a ten-year survey of the artist’s work. The two photographs and one sculpture to be displayed for the first time are new additions to Johan’s Until the Kingdom Comes series. As with the other works in the series, Untitled #152, 2008 (Bears), Untitled #155, 2010 (Frog eating bird) and Untitled #161, 2010 (Chicken) blur the line between fantasy and reality in the natural world. The exhibition features 21 photographs and sculptures—including works from the artist’s earlier series Evidence of Things Unseen—and will be on view at 21c Museum Hotel from July 2 through October 4. Many of the pieces in the show will then travel to the Frist Center for Visual Arts in Nashville, Tennessee, where they will be on view from February 20 to May 29, 2011. “21c has organized Until the Kingdom Co
