Dangerous Landscapes Exhibit
August 6 - September 24
Check out the Dangerous Landscapes exhibit through September 24th, 2021 at the Dinah Washington Cultural Arts Center. This CARI Joint Pilot for Arts Research (JPAR) project was co-sponsored with the Alabama Life Research Institute and the Office for Research and Economic Development.
In addition to the ongoing exhibit, there will be a reception on Friday, September 3rd at 5pm and a panel discussion on September 21st at 4 pm.
Dangerous Landscapes places contemporary photographs of chemical and fossil fuel industries in West Alabama by artist and Assistant Professor Allison Grant in dialog with large-scale reproductions of nineteenth-century views of progress published in the 1872 two-volume book Picturesque America. Grant worked in collaboration with Dr. Teresa Cribelli, Associate Professor at UA and Dr. Joan Barth, Senior Research Social Scientist for Institute for Social Science Research.
The project aims to encourage conversations within Alabama about how climate change will impact the Deep South, a region expected to experience profound climatic shifts. To learn more, click here.
