The first major art exhibition for Kress on Dexter, This Is Where You’ll Find Me reminds us that home — in all its complexities — is the inspiration for art and identity. Showcasing some of Alabama’s most revered artists, many works on view hit social injustice head-on, while others operate more subversively. Some works preserve and revere relics of the rural past, while others repurpose them to re-imagine their meaning. As visitors move through This Is Where You’ll Find Me will unfold as a reminder that we are the sum of our collective parts — the shiny, the tarnished, the sacred. This is a story of the life-giving work of art.

Artists featured are Butch Anthony, Willie Mae Brown, Vincent Buwalda, Thornton Dial, Sydney A. Foster, Quilts of Gee's Bend, R.C. Hagans, Lonnie Holley, Chintia Kirana Studio, Ronald Lockett, Michi Meko, Joe Minter and Bill Traylor.

On view April 21-June 16, 2018.
