The SCAD exhibitions department presents "It Is What It Is, But It Isn't," a solo exhibition by artist Kendell Carter. By combining a design-based sensibility with a hybridization of cultural styles and references-from Baroque to hip-hop-Carter's installations offer unique observations about form and function. "It Is What It Is, But It Isn't" draws our attention to innovative thinking and new assimilations of everyday objects and popular imagery in contemporary art. This exhibition closes at noon on Feb. 18.
