it's your world for the moment
The group exhibition it’s your world for the moment brings rare and never-before-seen work of historical and cultural significance to the Southeast while also supporting the commissioning of new work made within our region. The precariousness of our geographic and shared spaces is explored through ‘environmental portraits,’ explorations into ecological sites, and art-making tactics that incorporate cultural and symbolic meanings of both our natural and cultural spaces. Each artist in this exhibition has inexhaustibly created works of art uniquely positioned in the present while having a simultaneous relationship with the past and future. Their work collectively engages concepts of water and land in all of its complexity and precariousness, while rigorously engaging ideas of our climate and shared geography. Featuring artists: Allison Janae Hamilton, Yoshua Okón, Erin Jane Nelson, Ana Mendieta, and Lauren Bon and the Metabolic Studio. KSU English professor Elizabeth Giddens, an eco-critic who studies sustainability and resilience, shares an essay in the gallery about the work of one of the artists in the show.
