Kendall Buster, Model City (Constraint), 2016, paper, cardstock, and foam-board.

The Kreeger Museum and Tephra Institute of Contemporary Art (Tephra ICA) are pleased to present SOLSTICE, a solo exhibition by sculptor Kendall Buster on view at The Kreeger Museum December 9, 2023 – February 24, 2024 in conjunction with her solo presentation, SEED, on view at Tephra Institute of Contemporary Art in Reston, Virginia. This exhibition, curated by Jaynelle Hazard, Executive Director of Tephra ICA, features the single installation Model City (Constraint) which suggests a sprawling landscape of brute forms, referencing both geometric abstraction and modernist architecture. In the exhibition, sunshine filters into the gallery, defining the works’ whorls and chambers in an unpopulated cityscape that seems filled with talking shadows.

This exhibition is presented under The Collaborative, a program developed by The Kreeger Museum in 2021 to support Washington-area artists.

Presented in collaboration with Tephra Institute of Contemporary Art.
Curated by Jaynelle Hazard.

The Collaborative

David and Carmen Kreeger were devoted patrons of the arts and the Washington, DC arts community. They supported countless Washington-area artists including Sam Gilliam, Simmie Knox, Thomas Downing, Gene Davis, Morris Louis, Ed McGowin, and Albert Stadler, purchasing their work at the Corcoran Gallery of Art biennials, area galleries, and directly from artists in the 1960s and early 1970s. The Collaborative is a guest artist exhibition program developed to support Washington-area artists.

"We are thrilled to be in partnership with arts organizations across the city to present work of contemporary Washington-area artists. The Collaborative furthers our mission by supporting and spotlighting the immense talent of visual and performing artists in our city. We are honored to champion the work of these artists and provide many of them the opportunity to present their work in a museum for the first time." - Helen Chason, Director
