Francis Upritchard walks the line between fine art and kitsch fantasy sculpture. The small, humorous figures made out of techno-color painted clay take on nonsensical poses and often exist in specially tailored environments—such as under glass domes or on cupboards, tables and chairs—in order to emphasize both their diminutive scale and whimsical character. Jannis Varelas displays large-scale multimedia drawings of ambiguous characters, architectural structures and symbols that challenge human nature, time, history, language and myth. This exhibition is the first in a series of projects at the CAC organized by guest curators from around the world. More info: contemporaryartscenter.org
