Artist Talk: Kurt Gohde and Kremena Todorova
Bill Gatton Student Center, Worsham Cinema

Kurt Gohde and Kremena Todorova are Lexington-based artists and educators whose varied works are conceived to examine socio-political issues and questions of identity and place. They discuss their Unlearn Fear + Hate project, which was inspired by a need to address American tensions around racism and nationality, and seeks to promote public dialog through interactive engagement. The artists have used the phrase in various sculptural installations, photographs, stenciling, and sewing activities. Student Center visitors will recognize their installation of seven metal halos which serve as stations for selfies or portraits of friends and family.  

Gohde and Todorova both teach at Transylvania University and have presented their work in cities including Lexington, Cincinnati, Grand Rapids, Los Angeles, San Antonio, and Cape Town, South Africa, among others. They recently received the inaugural Georgia Davis Powers Award, established by the Kentucky Council for Social Studies.
