Barton shows work by artist-in-residence Stacey Kirby
Durham artist Stacey Kirby is featured in an exhibit and performance at Barton College.
Durham-based artist Stacey Kirby’s exhibition, “Vital Records,” will be on display through Nov. 19. Kirby is scheduled to be the artist-in-residence through Oct. 30.
Stacey Kirby has worked over the past decade on a series of “performative interactions,” or performances set within art installations, that are activated by viewer participation. Kirby’s work is intended to prompt dialogue about identity, community, civil rights, LGBTQI rights and immigration. These performative interactions foster conversation about community, civil rights and belonging in the United States. Kirby uses humor to reinvent the bureaucratic process to empower people to share their voice. The Barton College Art Galleries’ interns and the ArtWorks Cohort members will assist Kirby in her installation and performances while artist-in-residence.
Kirby holds a dual degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in studio art and journalism and mass communication and is a past recipient of the ArtPrize Eight Juried Grand Prize; the NC Arts Council Artist Fellowship for Visual Artists; ArtPrize Pitch Night Grant for North Carolina and an Indies Arts Award from INDY Week (formerly the Independent Weekly).
