The University Art Gallery presents Mississippi Heard, a cross-cultural multi-media project by Hanna Miller, C’13, Katya Korableva, and Stephen Barton, curated by Greg Gandy. Two seemingly unrelated cultures are brought together in images, text, and sound gathered during a 30-day train ride across Russia and a 6-week walk across Mississippi. Mississippi Heard shuttles between the familiar and the foreign, the individual and the political, to draw attention to the similarities between these distinct places, and to prompt visitors to reconsider their perceptions of people and places near and far. The exhibition will be on view in the University Art Gallery from Jan. 12- 31.
The artists and curator will speak about their work at 4:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 15, in Convocation Hall. A reception will follow. The event is free and open to the public.
