WOMEN IN THE WORLD… A VISUAL PERSPECTIVE

Feb 1-Mar 24

WOMEN IN THE WORLD… A VISUAL PERSPECTIVE 

Pollak Gallery - 9 AM

The Women In the World…A Visual Perspective, art exhibit ties into the theme for Women In Media – Newark’s 8th annual Women’s History Month Film Festival, and takes a broad look at the struggles and triumphs experienced by women globally. This exhibition, exquisitely curated by the renowned Gladys B. Grauer, uses the work of a socially and culturally diverse group of New Jersey based women artists to explore this seemingly simple topic. The images in this exhibit are not necessarily intended to be a literal interpretation of the theme, rather they often offer a metaphorical relationship to the theme. This inspiring exhibit is not to be missed! Opening Reception: Feb. 10, 6:30-8:30 PM. Exhibiting Artists include: Sybil Archibald, Anonda Bell, Cathleen McCoy Bristol, Eleta Caldwell, Caren King Choi, Dominique Duroseau, Anne Dushanko Dobek, Adebunmi Gbadebo, Evelyn Graves, Donna Conklin King, Yolande Skeete-Laessig, Grace Graupe Pillard, Patricia Arias-Reynolds, Melissa Saenz, Danielle Scott, Armisey Smith, Nette Thomas, Toni Thomas, Shoshanna Weinberger, and Adrienne Wheeler.

Drones by Karina Aguilera Skvirsky

Drones by Karina Aguilera Skvirsky 

Rotary Ice House Gallery - 10 AM

Drones are in the news. They carry out targeted killings; they are manned with cameras to record movements on the ground; hobbyists fly them in public spaces; Amazon wants to use them to deliver their products. Appropriating visual juxtapositions from the surrealists and kitsch sic-fi invasion films, Karina Aguilera Skvirsky's Drones, is a series of photo-collages that put flying objects into our aerial landscapes. This series includes landscapes from US, Ecuador and other unidentifiable locations. Skvirsky is a multi-disciplinary artist who works in photography, video and performance. Her work has been exhibited internationally in group and solo exhibitions. She teaches at Lafayette College and The New School, Parsons School of Design. Lecture: Feb. 2, from 4:30 – 5:30 p.m. in Wilson Hall Auditorium. Opening reception: Friday, Feb. 2, from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m.
