Indianapolis Museum of Art - Emily Kennerk: Suburban Nation

I am so hugely proud of one of my best friends, Emily, I'm seriously tearing up looking at these videos (courtesy of Nora). Emily and I have known each other since we were snotty nosed pony riding tomboys...and look at what she's doing now. Oh, Emily!

The first American museum exhibition featuring the work of Indianapolis native Emily Kennerk, Suburban Nation, includes large-scale installations influenced by the American landscape, which use mass-produced materials including vinyl siding, decking, roof shingles, and awnings. Transforming materials and forms found in suburbia, Kennerk freshly examines the public's relationship to these American icons.
