.Kelly Akashi: Formations Held at San Jose Museum of Art

History often contains hidden beauty, informing our understandings of the world. Los Angeles-based artist Kelly Akashi uses those understandings of the world to create “materially hybrid work,” incorporating old-world crafting such as glass blowing, candle-making and silicone casting with analog photography. In her new major exhibition Formations—on display at SJMA through May 21—Akashi’s works will sit alongside her newly commissioned series, telling the story of her family’s imprisonment in Japanese-American camps during WWII. The free opening celebration will take place during San Jose’s First Friday festivities.
