DESCRIPTION
Kendell Carter is a recent graduate from California State University, Long Beach. His installations bring together elements of urban street culture, modernist architecture, and textile and furniture design, funneling these disparate references into the domain of the museum gallery. Camouflage, brand-name clothing, and three-dimensional, chrome-plated graffiti share space with century-old toile designs and molded wainscoting. Carter blends and reshuffles the cultural identities of objects and materials, seeking to create a dialogue around their use and significance in contemporary society.
