Events by EventfulWater, Water Everywhere: Paean to a Vanishing Resource
Water, Water Everywhere: Paean to A Vanishing Resource will open to the public Sunday, June 1, 2014 in the Peter and Margaret de Wetter Gallery at the El Paso Museum of Art. Entrance to the Museum and this exhibition are free to the public.
Water is the world’s most crucial commodity and basis for all life on earth; its preservation and protection thus present one of our greatest environmental challenges. Continuing the long and noble tradition of art as cultural and political critique, Water Water Everywhere: Paean to a Vanishing Resource is an exhibition of video work examining water issues, the films being looped together and projected in the EPMA’s Peter and Margaret de Wetter Gallery. Intended to complement the larger Summer exhibition Vanishing Ice, this show features works that range in duration from less than a minute to half an hour. The films move in approach from artistic to documentary, and the international array of artists represented explore water from personal, social, and political perspectives. The works are experimental, educational, humorous, solemn, animated, or acted. Water Water Everywhere was curated by Jennifer Heath and organized by Baksun Arts & Books in Boulder, Colorado.
