Luxe Magazine listed the gallery in a list of Colorado destinations for “En Route” in their Spring 2014 issue:
Located in the historic LoDo neighborhood of Denver, David B. Smith Gallery has framed itself above the rest. Through progressive contemporary art, the gallery has made a name for itself among collectors on an international scale. Smith takes both established and emerging artists, such as Kim Keever (shown), to exhibit a curated and dynamic palette of talent. With an extensive publishing division and intelligent exhibits, the gallery serves as a cultural compass for the Colorado art scene.
A series of Kim Keever works are on display at the Metro State Denver Center for Visual Arts (CVA) for their exhibition, Semblance, celebrating the Month of Photography Denver.
From the CVA: Semblance presents lens and time-based works that share the elements of performance, ritual and illusion. Artists Sama Alshaibi, Neil Chowdhury, Kim Keever, Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison, Laura Shill, and Janaina Tschäpe explore ambiguous boundaries between the real and the imagined. Whether at first cloaked and later revealed, or simply drawing us into an enigmatic narrative without clear linear progression, the photographs and video works navigate a reality not clearly identified.
Semblance runs through April 13, 2013; please visit the CVA website for more information.
Kim Keever’s magnificent work Sunset 44d, is on view at the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art in Kansas City, Missouri, for the museum’s celebration of the 20th anniversary of their Oppenheimer Collection. Sunset 44d is also included in the 340 page Oppenheimer Collection catalogue, for which Andrea S. Norris writes:
“Playing with our perceptions of the natural, Keever’s images first compel a struggle to understand their subjects, then inspire wonder at the artist’s creativity and technical achievement of faux verisimilitude, and finally suggest troubling aspects of humankind’s relationship with nature….”
Please visit Kim Keever’s artist page for further information.
A detail image of Kim Keever’s Waterfall 04h is currently featured on the cover of the Denver Art Dealers Association gallery guide. This work will be on view during the artist’s solo exhibition in the Gallery, opening October 21, 2011.
Kim Keever’s large-scale photographs are created by meticulously constructing miniature topographies in a 200-gallon tank, which is then filled with water. These dioramas of fictitious environments are brought to life with colored lights and the dispersal of pigment, producing ephemeral atmospheres that he must quickly capture with his large-format camera. A combination of the real and the imaginary, they document places that somehow we know, but never were.
We are pleased to announce both Gregory Euclide and Kim Keever’s inclusion in Otherworldly: Optical Delusions and Small Realities, on view through September 18th at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York City. The exhibition depicts artificial environments and alternative realities, either as sculpture or as subjects for photography and video. It has received critical acclaim, and we urge all who can to visit the show at the Museum which is located at Columbus Circle.
For further information on Otherworldly: Optical Delusions and Small Realities, please visit the Museum of Arts and Design website. The Museum has produced a significant catalog to accompany the exhibition.
