Hollie Lyko and Adam Hutchinson
22November1963 Fall 2019
Hollie Lyko hails from Hatfield, Pennsylvania and currently resides in both New York and North Carolina. She earned her BFA in Ceramics from the University of Hartford in 2010 and was an Artist in Residence at the Corning Center for the Fine Arts in 2012. Lyko is currently an MFA candidate at Syracuse University. She teaches at Talent Agency, a high school portfolio prep program, in downtown Syracuse. Lyko’s current work manifests itself in both the ceramic object and installation. Her practice revolves around the intersection of kitsch, antiques, the American Dream and celebrity culture.
Adam Hutchinson received his BFA in Filmmaking from the Minneapolis College of Art & Design in 2010. Currently, Adam is pursuing his MFA at Syracuse University, expecting to graduate in 2019. Viewing himself as a sonic vessel, Hutchinson’s work investigates the physical presence of sound through deejay culture, curated archives, and aural collage.
This exhibition focuses on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and its dissemination into culture through specific objects; the commemorative ceramic plate and vinyl record as memorial. Works on display combine altered found objects with manipulated sound.
