SPRING/BREAK Art Show
Plague Planet, curated by Medieval Art PhD Margot McIlwain Nishimura, depicts a near future when climate change has rendered our planet plague-ridden and uninhabitable. As the wealthy did in Medieval times, the uber-rich of this catastrophic future activate their escape plans. Some move to floating cities on endlessly drifting yachts and others board spacecraft heading to find new worlds beyond our own.

“Anne Spalter’s painstaking covering of the entrance’s outer wall with 160 charcoal drawings. Although they seem similar at first glance, each work is actually unique; collectively, they visualize the rhythms of ritual drumming. Spalter created an accompanying sound piece derived from a French Polynesian fire dance she witnessed. Its soft patterings enliven the sterile atrium and introduce unseen mystery into the room.”
