THE LAB

The Lab is a dedicated venue for installation, time-based media, sound, and light. It is not afraid to showcase the fruit of visual experimentation, and it does not require a ‘finished product’ or an ‘established artist.’

IN THE LAB: THE ART OF EGG PRIZE

May 21-October 08

May 21 — October 2, 2022

“When I first built Egg Prize in 2012, I had no idea how influential it would be on me as an artist. Many of the challenges the project imposed were utterly new to me and forced me to think outside the norm.” – David Kail

Egg Prize is an 8-foot-tall custom vending machine by David Kail that dispenses egg-shaped capsules filled with art. Kail has continually generated new original artworks for this massive project for 10 years. How? Journey with us through The Art of Egg Prize on view in The Lab while Egg Prize itself debuts in Benton Harbor as part of KAC’s New Biennial: 2022 Invitational.
