SculptureX 2018: Igniting Change Exhibit in the Walter E. Terhune Gallery

The Terhune Gallery is exhibiting SculptureX 2018: Igniting Change, featuring the works of Kate Levy and Shanna Merola beginning August 27. The artists have backing through Kickstarter Arts to raise funds but before their campaign launches they will display their inaugural exhibition at the Owens Gallery. The show will continue through October 27.

The exhibition titled “Oil + Water”, uses their combined photographs from the past five years to make connections between the oil and gas industry, privatization of water, and increased militarization of local police and military. They have documented the water struggle in Detroit and Flint, Standing Rock, the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, New Orleans post Katrina and the Bakken Shale fracking boom in North Dakota.

Levy’s video work has been featured on Al Jazeera and Democracy Now. Merola has been featured in Interview Magazine, and many others. Together and separately they’ve also made videos on the water crisis and environmental justice. As photographers, videographers and investigative journalists they are interested in adding multimedia dimensions to the show.
