I'm Kenney Mencher. I'm an artist who left a tenured professorship in 2016 to pursue making art full time. This blog is about art, art history, with a emphasis on human rights. I make homoerotic art featuring bears, otters & other gay wildlife.
Transmission Gallery forges ahead with in-person exhibitions, with Jeremiah Jenkins: the world as we know it opening December 4th, 2020, and on view through January 30th, 2021.
With the chaos and discomfort of 2020 rolling into memory, it seems fitting that work by Jeremiah Jenkins will inaugurate a new year of exhibitions at Transmission Gallery as we face what comes next. In large part Jenkins' work is about rebuilding, reimagining and reconstructing a future from the damaged, discarded, distressed accumulations of the past. With a quirky conglomeration of reality, memory, desire and presence, the work invites a sense of humor, curiosity and hope in facing the challenges and uncertainties ahead.
Come out to see it in the real, Fridays and Saturdays, noon to 5 pm at Transmission Gallery, current health guidelines permitting.
Participate by downloading your the world as we know it pdf, assembling and photographing it, and posting your world to instagram with #theworldasweknowit.
