Al Farrow: Wrath and Reverence

Episode 2:  Brooke talks with Alice Stites of the 21C Museum Hotel in Lexington, Kentucky about their Al Farrow: Wrath and Reverence exhibition.  Farrow has been crafting figures out of unorthodox materials like ammunition, steel, bronze, as well as clay since 1970.

Farrow’s work can also be found in the public collections of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; the San Jose Museum of Art; the de Young Museum; the Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco; and the collection of the State of Israel. Most recently, he has had solo exhibitions at the Aeroplastics Contemporary in Brussels and the Forum Gallery in New York City. Farrow has exhibited with Catharine Clark since 1994 and is also represented by galleries in Washington, D.C. and Brussels.

The Wrath and Reverence exhibit at 21C the shows religious images from churches, mosques, and temples in a new light to illustrate the fine line between war and peace, holy and unholy, sacred and secular.
