Learn about work of international artists Kahn & Selesnick at Indiana State Sept. 17

A carnival at the end of the world, an iceberg endangering a small town in Germany and Edwardian astronauts are only some of the visual narratives international artists Nicholas Kahn and Richard Selesnick create for their fictitious histories.

You can learn more about their absurdist fantasies, and the serious messages behind them, at a presentation at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday in the Recital Hall, Landini Center for Performing and Fine Arts.

On Wednesday, beginning at 9 a.m. in the University Art Gallery, you can learn first-hand how to effectively navigate the art market. Join Kahn & Selesnick for an opportunity to hear about how these international artists have successfully made a career with their artwork.

Both presentations are free and open to the public.

Kahn & Selesnick have been a collaborative team since they met in undergraduate school at Washington University in St. Louis. They use their skills as sculptors, painters, video artists and photographers to create narratives and multi-medium installations.

They are represented by galleries across the county, including Yancey Richardson Gallery in New York City and Kopeikin Gallery in Los Angeles.

Their Aperture book “Scotlandfuturebog” won the best photography book award at the 2002 New York Book Show. Other Aperture publications include “City of Salt” and “Apollo Prophecies.”

Kahn & Selesnick have exhibited their work in solo and group exhibitions across the United States, Belgium, the Netherlands, Canada, France, Germany and China.

Ten photographs from Kahn & Selesnick’s “Truppe Fledermaus” series are on display in the University Art Gallery through Sept. 20 in the exhibition “Collecting in the 21st Century: Recent Acquisitions, 2001-2013.”

Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday; 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday; and by appointment.
