&Now 2015: Blast Radius has ended

Kean O'Brien

Kean O’Brien was raised in Chicago and attended SAIC for his undergraduate studies. After completing his MFA at CalArts in photography and Media in 2011 he co-founded an artist run space in East Los Angeles, Concord.  After his adventure with the Concord project he pursued his desires to be an educator again. Kean’s work is about community building through art practices, deconstructing and reconstructing masculinity, queerness, binary systems of oppression, and the construction of identification.


Kean is currently working on a large-scale curatorial project, Transient, that was recently funded by The City of West Hollywood and The Ronald Feldman Gallery. Also, Kean is working on an ongoing project, Conversations with Trans.audacity, which is a body of work that deals with his desire to create supportive community and the necessity to learn from other artists, on how they are creating an artistic practice and functioning in their studios. www.keanobrien.com
