A Collaborative Exhibition Exploring the Complex Nature of the Migrant Crisis

On view October 29 - December 10, 2017

Reception and Artist Talk with Joe Cory  on Sunday, December 3rd, 4-6p.m. w/ the talk at 4:30pm.

"Out of the Depths is a collaborative traveling art exhibition that investigates the current migrant crisis from the perspective of a Lebanese street photographer (Fadi BouKaram, Beirut, Lebanon) and an American painter (Joe Cory, Birmingham, Alabama). In the exhibit powerful images of the middle east are juxtaposed with paintings based on filtered information mediated by American news sources. Motifs of water and navigational symbols further pervade the imagery, as viewers are challenged to rethink their assumptions about what it means to be living in the Middle East and a refugee. The exhibition is curated by Matt Schneider (Birmingham, Alabama)."
