‘Conley Clark: Transition Spaces 19.3’ Opens Nov. 1 in Crisp Museum


“Conley Clark: Transition Spaces 19.3” opens Friday, Nov. 1, in the Rosemary Berkel and Harry L. Crisp II Museum at Southeast Missouri State University’s River Campus.

The public is invited to view the exhibition beginning Nov. 1. An opening reception is scheduled for 4-8 p.m. that evening and will include an artist’s talk at 6 p.m. The exhibit will remain on display through Jan. 26. Admission is free.

Clark is a multiple media artist, utilizing sculpture, photography, video, sound and performance to engage with issues concerning contemporary queer visual culture. He does this through a layered process of observation, building up spatial collages of color, objects and multi-sensory parts.

Clark, a native of Cape Girardeau, Missouri, is a 2016 Southeast graduate with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in sculpture. He is gallery manager at the Arts Council of Southeast Missouri in downtown Cape Girardeau. He is currently pursuing a Master of Fine Arts at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
