THROUGH OUR EYES. 7 Young Emerging Colombia Artists' Perspectives on 21st-Centry Crises

Fredric Jameson Gallery, Friedl Building, East Campus. November 11-15, 2013

The work is a perspective, an intervention, and an invitation for diverse audiences to engage with art and artist. Students, artists, researchers and faculty at three universities in three cities in two countries are collaborating on this exhibit: the Universidad Nacional de Colombia in Medellín, Emerson College in Boston, and Duke University in Durham. We integrate publications, pedagogies, and practices of writing with those of art, architecture, science and social science to focus on some our world’s most pressing local and global 21st-century problems.
