Aquatic channels: waterways, water resources, fluvial imaginations reflects on rivers as complex systems shaping human and non-human existence in their multiple roles as fundamental resources for sustenance of life, spaces of political dispute, sites of memory and construction of discourses about possible futures. Presenting the works of Laray Polk (Dallas, Texas), Carolina Caycedo and David de Rozas (Chicago, Illinois), Gabriel Bicho (Porto Velho, Brazil), and Ubiratan Gamalodtaba Suruí (Cacoal, Brazil), this exhibition engages in an ecocritical approach to present-day water issues through dialogues among artists from various regions in the Americas.
Panel discussions with these artists are also planned for the fall 2022 and spring 2023.
This exhibition will be held in both the Hamon Arts Library/Hawn Gallery and Pollock Gallery simultaneously. For more information, call 214-768-3813 or visit https://www.smu.edu/libraries/hamon or https://www.smu.edu/Meadows/AreasofStudy/Art/PollockGallery
