Exhibit Will Bring to Utah a Collection of Artists Who Embody the Innovative, Raw, Edgy, Provocative Spirit of the 33-Year Old Festival

Kimball Art Center announced today its new exhibition celebrating diverse and innovative artists titled Thirty-Three: Celebrating 33 Years of the Independent Spirit & Sundance Film Festival.  The exhibition set to open January 19, 2017, is curated by award winning director and Sundance Institute alum, Morgan Spurlock, with additional co-curation by Jensen Karp & Katherine Sutton of Gallery1988 in Los Angeles, California.  Thirty-Three will showcase 33 emerging and established artists that are at the forefront of contemporary and visual art and run the gamut of pop art style and aesthetic.

“Morgan Spurlock is a visionary filmmaker with a demonstrated talent for curating emerging and established artists to bring a fresh perspective to the art scene,” said Robin Marrouche, Executive Director of the Kimball Art Center. “Together with Gallery1988 of Los Angeles, he has co-curated a show for Kimball Art Center that is both playful and provocative. This Thirty-Three exhibition pays homage to over three decades of creativity generated by Sundance Film Festival and is the perfect addition for art enthusiasts to enjoy during the Festival. The Kimball Art Center is thrilled to be a part of such an innovative collaboration.”

“I’m so excited to bring together my love and passion for art and film into this one spectacular exhibit. And to do it while we reflect on the incredible and impactful 33 years of world changing movies is even more meaningful. There’s no place in the world like Sundance,” said Morgan Spurlock, curator of Thirty-Three and award-winning director.
