Beyond Despair: Panel Discussion & Reception

National Humanities Center
March 27 6-8 pm
7 TW Alexander Dr
Research Triangle Park, NC 27709

This exhibition juried by Joshua White, photographer and professor at Appalachian State University, asked artists to present and showcase work about, including, and referencing the environment.

The artists in this exhibition explore relationships with nature in many ways, from meditations on what we have and stand to lose, to evidence of the impacts we have already made on our environment. Far from depictions of horrific scenes or propaganda, these pieces are quiet invitations that ask the viewer to consider beauty, land, and loss. They are unflinching mirrors and humane elegies that create a space for deliberation and ask us to shake off the dust of inactivity and move beyond despair. 

-Joshua White

Joshua along long with artists Daniel Kariko and Jennifer Anderson Printz, will have a discussion about the show and its themes as part of the exhibition reception.

This exhibition is in partnership with the National Humanities Center and will be exhibited during their conference, Beyond Despair, April 3-5, 2019.
