Unbound Visual Arts (UVA) and the Harvard Ed Portal's Crossings Gallery are proud to present "The Waste Land on Earth?".
This innovative exhibition explores the impacts of a constant cycle of consumption on landscapes and communities. UVA guest curator Caitlin Bowler invited artists to respond to a world shaped by this mindset of disposability. The exhibition is intended to stimulate conversation and discussion about mass consumption -- “getting and spending” -- which has profoundly shaped the modern experience in industrialized societies.
August 8th: Public program and reception from 5:00-8:00 PM at the Crossings Gallery. Come enjoy light refreshments served throughout the evening and a curated music playlist that will bring the art to life. The event includes an artist panel discussion moderated by the curator.
The exhibit features paintings, quilts, sculptures, video, digital and internet, performance, and mixed media.
Featured artists include Agusta Agustsson, Lani Asuncion, Nancer Ballard, Jennifer Costello, Nancy Crasco, Gary Duehr, Mary Gillis, Lynda Goldberg, Muriel Horvath, Tom Jackson, Amy Kelly, Elizabeth Lapides, Madeline Lee, Pauline Lim, Susan Loomis-Wing, Amy McGregor-Radin, Michael McLaughlin, Michaela Morse, Ruth Rieffanaugh, Alexandra Rozenman, Diane Sheridan, Jeannie Simms, Olga Tsetniva, and Huma Yildirim.
