Event description

Description

Out of the Depths is a collaborative traveling art exhibition that explores 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 confront themes of proximity and distance along with complex images of humanity and assumptions of what it means to be living as a refugee. The exhibition is curated by Matt Schneider (Birmingham, Alabama).

Join us at Still Point February 24, 2018 from 2-4 pm for a gallery reception with one of the artists, Joe Cory, and exhibition curator Matt Schneider. Representatives from local and international organizations supporting refugees will also be on hand, including Clarkston Community Center and Wellspring International. This event will be catered by Refuge Coffee and is free and open to the public. RSVP and invite your friends!
