Faces from the Southern Ocean

Faces from the Southern Ocean


May 5, 2018 – November 25, 2018

Antarctica is completely surrounded by the Southern Ocean. There are no sounds except for reverberating wind and water punctuated by the cracking and booming of ice as it breaks off into the sea. It is a pristine place, overwhelming and awesome.

Through a selection of photography by J.J. L’Heureux, Faces From the Southern Ocean embodies the spirit of the Southern Ocean and Antarctica, a realm dominated by sky and cold. Reindeer, seals and penguins—inhabitants of this icy region—along with breathtaking landscapes are captured in photographs from L’Heureux’s more than a dozen expeditions to this region.

Faces from the Southern Ocean is organized by Katharine T. Carter & Associates.

 

 

Northern Triangle

Northern Triangle

April 19, 2018 – September 16, 2018

In 2014, more than 68,000 unaccompanied children were apprehended on the U.S./Mexico border, double the number from the previous year. Of this group, the majority are from the Central American countries of El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras. Known as the Northern Triangle, this region has a long and complicated relationship with the United States.

Originally commissioned by Blue Star Contemporary Art Museum, Northern Triangle is an exhibition created by Borderland Collective that opens a space for constructive dialogue and exchange around the current Central American refugee crisis along the U.S./Mexico border.
