Walsh Gallery presents “New World Water”

Artists Exhibit Under the Thematic Umbrella of Water
NEW WORLD WATER
November 4 – December 13, 2019

Opening Reception: Thursday, November 7th (5pm to 9pm)

The Walsh Gallery is pleased to present New World Water, a group exhibition which examines humanity’s relationship with water through the lens of contemporary art. The artists in the exhibition address themes such as: climate change, water contamination, immigration, diaspora, plastic pollution, community water management, leisure, and hygiene.

Participating artists include Keren Anavy, Dotty Attie, Aileen Bassis, Adam Brent, Nancy Cohen, Nancy Crasco, Sally Gall, Tai Hwa Goh, Ellie Irons, Anne Percoco, Nyugen Smith, Allan Wexler, and Woolpunk. The exhibition will also feature art and artifacts from the university’s collections.  A public art project, “Lawn (Re)disturbance Laboratory” by artists Anne Percoco and Ellie Irons, is currently on view on the campus grounds.  The exhibition is curated by Samantha Becker, a graduate student in the Museum Professions Program at Seton Hall University.

Becker’s goal in curating a show on this theme is to present a diverse, yet important, series of issues surrounding water – a resource we often take for granted.  Notes Becker, “When a social issue is presented in our society, numbers on a television screen or in a newspaper do not evoke the same empathy as a personal connection to the issue.  This show will make the many issues surrounding this precious resource evident in an experiential manner.”  The curator also worked with students and faculty from the University Libraries, Environmental Studies and the School of Diplomacy to understand the issues from numerous angles. One of the components of the collaboration with the University Libraries and the School of Diplomacy is a Water Data Visualization Project, which will be on view in the Walsh Gallery Display Windows.

The Walsh Gallery is open 10:30 am to 4:30 pm, Monday—Friday.
