Marian Herring: The Selsha Project
Art Building South Gallery

Selsha is a planet far away in a different solar system; it plays host to all manner of creatures. Several of these creatures are intelligent and have formed entire cultures, languages, and societies. The Selsha Project is an attempt to catalog and record the biodiversity of this alien world and its many wonders. This exhibition fulfills the capstone requirement of the BA in Art.

Also of Interest this Week:

Artists' talk: Cody Arnall and J. Eric Simpson: What Can We Make When We Can't Make War?
January 23, 7pm, CO-OPt Research + Projects, 4202 Boston Ave
Exhibition continues through January 28th.

Cody Arnall and J. Eric Simpson exhibit their recent collaborative project Isolated State at CO-OPt : Research and Projects, with an artists' talk on January 23, 2020. The installation, which takes the form of a corn-distributing deer feeder, explores the effects of industrial agriculture—its herbicide runoff, water irrigation, and physical encroachment—on playa lake ecosystems in the South Plains. Isolated State is accompanied by two other works: Granddad's Gimmie-Caps by Simpson, and Don't Know About You but I'm Not Going Down With the Ship by Arnall. Titled What Can We Make When We Can't Make War?, the summation of the exhibition is haunting. It digs up the implications of the past and grapples with the fallout of the present—revealing the self-destructive tendencies in human behavior. Please join us for a conversation with Arnall and Simpson moderated by Natalie Hegert on January 23 at 7pm.
