This exhibition featured a selection of works on paper that invoked various idioms of storytelling and were selected from the Kansas City Art Institute’s permanent collection. Storytelling invites ideas of imagination and magic, often with the use of playful, fictional or anecdotal sensibilities. The works on view conjured journeys based in imagination, thought and play while also provoking a dialogue on serious issues. Artists included Eldred Aethelred, Terry Allen, Alice Aycock, Tony Fitzpatrick, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert E. Smith, H.C. Westerman and Alan Winkler.
