Jimmy Kuehnle is a performance and sculpture-based artist who creates large-scale, high-tech inflatables that expand our notions of abstract art. For this exhibition, Kuehnle is filling four exhibition galleries with touchable, interactive environments using inflatables that combine, sound, light, space, and texture to create unexpected experiences for visitors as they move under, through, and around these works. Kuehnle is also creating a bright pink inflatable sculpture that will project dramatically out of our façade’s architectural grid overlooking Boyd Plaza, literally spilling out into the city as a calling card to the wonder inside.
