Research output: Non-textual formExhibition


All media juried exhibition. Works were curated and juried by the Slocumb Galleries' Exhibition Committee. 43 pieces were selected from a pool of 147 entries. The committee chair Mira Gerard described the show as “43 carefully selected paintings, sculptures, videos and two-dimensional works that comprise The Day on Fire: Apocalypse in Contemporary Art reflect a cross-section of current preoccupations with devastation, war, end-times, and environmental collapse. The artists included in this exhibition openly question the meaning of ending by offering a contemporary perspective on memento mori, consciously acknowledging the relationship of desire and the death drive without offering definitive answers.”
