Opening Reception At Akron Soul Train; Matt Kurtz and Thomas Smith

Performance artist Matthew B. Kurtz presents “Drumroll for a Solar Eclipse: A Preliminary Exhibition,” a prelude to his upcoming live performance with this year’s solar eclipse. Kurtz’s work fuses place, nature, sound, rhythm, and movement to question the mystery of existence. With humor, curiosity, and in tandem with his surroundings, “Drumroll” explores the process of trying to understand wonder. Thomas Smith is a Cleveland-based artist. He received his BFA from the Cleveland Institute of Art in 2023. His living sculptural works critique Midwestern suburbia through their use of cheap materials and faux finishing. His interest and subject is personally derived from his own experience of the 2008 housing crisis.
