Judith G. Levy’s current exhibition explores history, culture and identity. In WE ALL COME FROM SOMETHING the artist reconstructs historical narratives and family stories to show that American culture is complicated and filled with expressions of commonality and contradiction. Levy’s work is animated by images, text and ideological references to explore how perceptions, definitions and concepts are shaped. Levy’s exhibition encompasses mediums ranging from photography and video to neon works and outdoor installations that surround the Fine Arts building on UMKC campus. Also included in this exhibition is the Memory Cloud, pictured above.

Levy, a native New Yorker, has lived in the Midwest for the past nineteen years, and worked for many years in public mental health. She has presented solo exhibitions of her work at venues including The Indianapolis Museum of Art, Indiana University, Big Car Gallery in Indianapolis, Soo Visual Arts Center in Minneapolis, and Navta Schulz Gallery in Chicago. Levy’s work has been included in group exhibitions at the Elmhurst Art Museum in Chicago; Memorial Art Gallery Museum in Rochester, NY; Bridge Art Fair, Miami; Plug In Institute for Contemporary Art, Winnipeg; The Indianapolis Art Center; The Plains Art Museum, Fargo; and the Paragraph Gallery, La Esquina, Epsten Gallery, H & R Block Artspace, and Spyn Gallery in Kansas City.
