The end of war does not mean peace. It is simply the end of war, the end of death and destruction. Every story of war includes a chapter that almost always goes untold – the story of the aftermath, which day by day becomes the prologue of the future. Image: Kathryn Cook.

Knowledge Bennett
September 1, 2021 - December 17, 2021

 

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 will span 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”.

PIECES OF A MAN shall commence September 1 and run thru December 17, 2021. Kean University is located at 1000 Morris Ave, Union NJ 07083.
