Red Guns by Kadie Salfi

  • Ithaca, New York United States of America (map)

As part of my work as a Graduate Resident Fellow at Alice Cook House, Cornell University, I have co-curated an exhibit by local Ithaca artist Kadie Salfi, titled Red Guns. Kadie Salfi is the partner of Jason Salfi, an Alice Cook House Fellow. Alice Cook House Fellows create engaged learning experiences with and for Alice Cook House residents and the larger Cornell community. Red Guns is an art exhibit that thematizes mass school shootings in America, as a way to spark a conversation about American attitudes towards gun culture. Red Guns has been curated by myself and fellow Alice Cook House GRF Sadé Ayorinde, installed with the help of student residents, and exhibited in the Willard Straight Hall Gallery at Cornell University in March and April 2017. It was accompanied by discussion panels, contextualizing materials, and a reception. (View press articles from the Cornell Daily Sun and Of Note Magazine)
