KIN: someone or something of the same or similar kind.

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]March 2nd – April 5th, 2012
Opening Reception:
Friday, March 2nd from 6:30 – 9:00pm

Our kin is a web of social relationships – our clan, our tribe, our people. As we have evolved through time, the desire for family becomes centered less on the nexus of blood relations, and has shifted to shared cultural interests as a base for social identity. This March, TAC presents an exhibition of photographic work depicting groups of kindred souls, whose basis of kinship seeks to broaden the very definition of the word. Focusing largely on youth culture, KIN explores some of the ties that bind us: family, neighborhood, sport and music. Featuring artists Andreas Laszlo Konrath, Brian Sorg, Christopher Semel, Gary Briechle, Jeffrey Wolin, Leasha Overturf and Paul Elledge. Curated by Jason Robinette.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”6918″ alignment=”center” border_color=”grey” img_link_large=”” img_link_target=”_self” img_size=”full”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
