Kristi Abbott moved to the U.S. from Australia four years ago. And in that time, she turned her gaze inward, focusing on and figuring out who she is as an artist. Her discovery: “I Am,” a collection of eight portraits—”I Am Art,” “I Am Woman,” “I Am Erotic,” “I Am Brave,” “I Am Imagination,” “I Am Love,” “I Am Minnesotan,” and “I Am American.”
Abbott will be unveiling her series at The Show Gallery Lowertown in St. Paul. Not only can attendees expect to see rich ties to social, political, and cultural influences in each piece, but they can take in the art in a fully immersive experience. Tantalizing all five of your senses, all of the artworks “will be paired with interactive maps, time-lapse videos, custom music sound tracks, food and drink to sensually immerse the viewer,” according to the press release.
Attend the grand opening on March 31 from 7–9pm, or come April 1–2 from 11am–6pm for the open-to-the-public viewing.
