KEAN UNIVERSITY is pleased to present “PIECES OF A MAN, a survey of new works by Los Angeles based, contemporary artist, Knowledge Bennett. Bennett returns to his home state of New Jersey to put together his largest exhibition to date, waging a complete takeover of KEAN University’s campus galleries.
The exhibition spans across 5 galleries, each with its own new body of work. While the world was experiencing a global lockdown, Bennett was reminded of what it meant to be “still” yet not necessarily sit still. Continuing right through the pandemic, studying, designing, photographing, and painting, he’s amassed a collection of new works ready to be unveiled to the public this fall. The exhibition borrows its title from the late great Gil Scott-Heron’s 1971 debut studio album. The album which Scott-Heron emphatically states, “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised.”
Works are featured in the Karl and Helen Burger Gallery, Human Rights Institute Gallery, Nancy Dryfoos Gallery, and the Liberty Hall Academic Center Gallery & Exhibition Hall on Kean's campus. View the exhibition map at www.kean.edu/knowledge-bennett
