Brett Kern: The Lost World
September 1, 2019 – August 16, 2020
The tagline of Jurassic Park: The Lost World reads “Something has Survived”, and this is undeniably true for Brett Kern. What survived? Brett’s infatuation with the pop culture of the 80s and 90s. A master of clay, Brett’s sculptures are fun, smart and nothing short of exceptional.
