5:00 PM - 7:00 PM World News: Alternate Views by Nancy Jenner
Artist Talk and Reception: Thursday, January 31. 5:00 P.M.
Exhibition View January 31-March 1
Hollister Gallery
FREE
CLICK TO RSVP

In today's media rich culture, we are beginning to learn that everything we see or read is constructed, shaped by the news media we favor and our political inclinations. In these two installations, Jenner provides alternate ways to view the news of the world  environmental pollution in one and the toll of political conflict on families in the other.  The pieces share references to art history but are as distinct as the issues, using different media and materials to build a visual narrative on the topic.  The work doesn't claim to have answers, only to provide perspective and, perhaps, cause us to be more circumspect in our conclusions and more motivated in our advocacy.
