The exhibit, "Thirty-Three: Celebrating 33 Years of the Independent Spirit & Sundance Film Festival," will be curated by Spurlock and co-curated by Jensen Karp and Katherine Sutton of Los Angeles' Gallery1988.
The exhibit open Jan. 19 through Feb. 12 at the Kimball, 1401 Kearns Blvd. in Park City will feature work from 33 artists, both established and emerging, on the leading edge of contemporary and visual art.
In a statement, Robin Marrouche, the Kimball's executive director, called the exhibit "playful and provocative."
