Jean Kang and Jered Sprecher 

When: Jan. 17-Feb. 8 2013
One of the best things about Vanderbilt’s Space 204 is the variety of work you can see in one visit. The directors typically curate two stand-alone shows, then house them side by side to create a singular artsy microcosm. But for this latest pairing, the work is surprisingly similar in its formalist, minimal approach — whether that’s a good or bad thing is yet to be determined. Jean Kang is the recipient of the 2011 Hamlett Award, a 25K prize that was earmarked for a year of art research and travel, and this exhibit is the culmination of the work she’s been making since winning the award. No pressure, Kang! The exhibit, titled Yuja — a term meaning “female” or “woman” in Korean — is a collection of drawings, prints and installation. In the neighboring gallery space, Jered Sprecher presents paintings that the artist, a University of Tennessee professor, describes as “images that are revealed as fragments in the midst of change, destruction, redefinition and restoration.”
