Venue
Root Division

Location
San Francisco, CA

Strong Wrestlers by John Patrick McKenzie © 2009 Creativity Explored. Marker on plywood, 13.25 x 6.5 inches.

Artwork by Creativity Explored's John Patrick McKenzie will be featured in Root Division's Character Profile, a group exhibition featuring projects that explore intersections between the forms, mechanisms and meanings of language. This exhibition investigates novel functions of language through collaboration and a broad range of materials, media and approaches.

The artists in Character Profile present language as both a medium and a subject, and deftly maneuver words to both convey and critique meaning. Many works are interactive and dedicated to a spirit of engagement and play. The exhibition highlights art designed for direct interaction with visitors and work that provokes expanded meanings and alternative associations of language and test.
