This We Have Now
September 1, 2021 - September 25, 2021
Featuring work by Cannupa Hanska Lugar, Adriene Hughes, and Ella Morton.
We are in the midst of a climate crisis. An emergency that that affects not only this planet, our home but all of its inhabitants. Who is poised to survive this crisis is a question that is asked much more frequently as we begin to experience and understand the consequences of capitalism and colonialism. With the corresponding abuse and mismanagement of the forests, water, and the dire effect, these ways of thinking and acting are now drastically evident and our future uncertain.
Hughes explores the symbiosis of the forest canopy and its response to wildfires. Illuminating the way that nature and humans are all connected. Morton synthesizes the melting ice caps as a marker for the quickness of the loss and damage. Lugar explores a future where the colonizers have left the indigenous peoples and those that work the land behind. A time where healing and connection to the earth are paramount.
Together, these works show us the inter-connectedness of all beings, the danger we all face, and possible futures that await us.
Open Hours: 1 – 5 pm Thursday, Friday, Saturday
