Art 365 Project: Exodus
Knox received one of five Art 365 awards of $12,000 to produce new artwork for the Art 365 exhibition.
Knox’s recent artwork has focused on discovering and preserving Ukrainian traditions through food. Exploring her heritage as a third generation Ukrainian-American, Knox traveled to Ukraine to meet family members, conduct research, and gather artifacts. Through food, installation and performance, Knox further investigates her cultural identity and family history.
Audiences can interact with Knox at the following public programs during the exhibition:
March 1, 10:30 am-Noon: Gallery Talk with Art 365 Artists & Curator
April 17, 6-7:30 pm: Panel – Art 365 Artists
