Max Kauffman Art Show ‘When the Current Dictates’ Opens September 16 in Tampa

Max Kauffman has announced his solo show, “When the Current Dictates” opening September 16 at CASS Contemporary¬†in Tampa, FL. This is Kauffman’s first solo show since 2014.

Kauffman shares some insight on the event, running through October:

“Much like a musician, large chunks of the last few years have been spent on the road. There is an aliveness to it – the openness of possibility, embracing risk, and adapting to plans on the fly. It seeps into the work in the form of new ideas/approaches, and most importantly, openness. While there is plenty of inspiration while traveling, it also takes it’s toll. Not being able to maintain a routine/sleep in your bed/have your space, these things don’t seem to matter until you lose them.

My work has looked at the concept of balance for the last 8 years or so. As I’ve done art full time while maintaining some sort of “my own life” apart from that, this meta narrative continues to have more importance. For me this requires being able to recharge & be steeped in silence, and some trips need a few weeks(/months) to bounce back from. Thus, most of this year has been spent holed up in the studio digesting and reconsidering…everything.”
