About this event

You're invited to join Kaiser Gallery on September 30, at 6:30 pm for an insightful look into the work of Chad Eby, Andrew Ellis Johnson, Matt Milligan, and Nowhere Mountain, on view as part of Kaiser Gallery's 'The Weight of Time' exhibit. Open from August 14 - October 10, 2021.

Zoom registration is now open, or join the watch party at Kaiser Gallery for the live broadcast.

The 'Weight of Time' is an exhibition that explores the surrealism of a very real global pandemic through introspective works. The novel virus COVID-19 threw the world as we knew it into a situation that we've never seen before. The global pandemic and the shutdowns that followed created disorientating challenges for various people to navigate in different ways while further exposing broken government infrastructure and community ramifications for a world that was not prepared to stop.

Presenting the works of Chad Eby, Danny Greene, Andrew Ellis Johnson, Matt Milligan, Haumed Rahmani, and Nowhere Mountain.

Chad Eby

​Chad Eby is a Lexington Kentucky-based multidisciplinary artist, designer and educator working with light, sound, and code to engage with the grain of digital technologies.

Eby creates work, by turns stark and whimsical, that explores humanity's fraught relationship with made objects using sound, light, and digital fabrication techniques.

His research interests revolve around the peculiar relationship between digital and physical: especially the residue-loss, surplus and corruption-that results from moving back and forth between atoms and bits, map and territory, description and thing.

Part of the faculty of University of Kentucky's School of Visual Art Studies since 2019, Chad previously served at the Herron School of Art and Design at IUPUI in Indianapolis, Kungliga Tekniska högskolan (the Royal Institute of Technology) in Stockholm, and Florida State University in Tallahassee. He was awarded the Frank C. Springer Family Faculty Innovation Award in 2017.

Chad's work has been shown at the Tekniska Museet (the Swedish National Museum of Science and Technology) in Stockholm, Sweden, Generative Art XXII in Rome, Italy, New Media Fest in Valencia, Spain, the Indianapolis Museum of Art, TAG at the University of Western Florida, the Columbia College Center for Book and Paper and various local venues across the United States. He has attended competitive residencies at the Atlantic Center for the Arts, Elsewhere, and was selected for the inaugural Space Art Summer School hosted at the Russian Museum of Cosmonautics.

Andrew Ellis Johnson

Andrew Ellis Johnson’s work has appeared in galleries, festivals, public collaborations, conferences, and publications in the Americas, Europe, Asia and the Middle East. He has performed as co-founder of the collective PED in Buffalo, Belfast, Chongqing, Rio de Janeiro, St. John’s, and Toronto. He studied at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (BFA) and Carnegie Mellon University (MFA) in Pittsburgh, where he is Associate Professor of Art. Residencies and exchanges over the last decade include those at: Korean National University of the Arts, Seoul; Blue Mountain Center, New York; University of the Arts London, Camberwell; Fayoum International Art Center, Egypt; Sites of Passage in Jerusalem/Ramallah/ Pittsburgh; and Tsinghua University in Beijing.

​Recent two-person exhibits include RESORT at Kendall College of Art & Design and McDonough Museum of Art and GETTING THERE at Gettysburg College and this fall at Stockton University. His most recent solo show was FOUNDER at SUNY Cortland’s Dowd Gallery.

Matt Milligan

Matt Milligan (b. 1973) is an artist based in New York City working in digital and film photography. His work explores identity and its connections with home and community. Originally from Dallas, Texas, he holds a degree in musicology from the University of North Texas. Having always been attracted to how music conveys meaning, he carries that theoretical approach into his photography. Milligan's work was recently included in Scopio's "Rethinking, Questioning Urban Realities through Photography in the Age of COVID-19," in Porto, Portugal.

Nowhere Mountain

Nowhere Mountain is an art collaborative made up of St. Louis, Missouri based visual artist Mark Regester and Salt Lake City, Utah based composer, producer, multi-instrumentalist, sound-artist and mad scientist Dave Madden.
