Nam Clark Memorial Exhibition

OCT. 9 – NOV. 21


Punch Bag Rabbit Repair by Nam Clark, 2007, oil on canvas

This exhibition celebrates the work and all too brief life of Nam Clark. Clark received both BA and MA degrees at Eastern Illinois University prior to receiving an MFA from the University of Illinois-Urbana/Champaign in 2008 and starting his career as a college art instructor.

Clark wrote that the characters in his politically charged paintings “stage themselves, performing in exaggerated spectacles which personify the absurdity of their existence ... costumes attach like a second skin ... disconnecting them from the consequences of their actions, enabling them to continue an existence devoid of conscience in a world of twisted humor.”

Clark died unexpectedly earlier this year. This exhibition is curated by Clark’s friend and mentor Chris Kahler of the EIU Art Department.

This program is co-sponsored with the Tarble Arts Center.
