On the High Wall: Satpreet Kahlon

A slow unraveling of the same thread (and the universal tragedy of time)

June 7 – 10, 2018

Satpreet Kahlon is a multidisciplinary artist who is based in Seattle, WA + Providence, RI. Born in Punjab, India and raised in the Midwest, she is interested in creating visual language and immersive encounters that express and explore intersectional experiences as well as the structural systems of inequity that dictate their boundaries. In addition to her studio practice, which has been featured in Artforum, she founded and curates at Deep Space Gallery, and, between 2015 and 2017, she designed and taught social engagement programming in partnership with the Seattle Art Museum. She is currently studying at the Rhode Island School of Design, where she received a full fellowship to pursue her MFA in Sculpture.
Satpreet’s work will also be on display at the Lore Re-imagined exhibit at the Wing Luke Museum starting June 15.
About Lore Re-imagined:

Lore Re-imagined, which opens Friday, June 15th, connects the age-old tradition of storytelling to the present through the works of three contemporary artists. Learn more
