Usdan Gallery Presents Marina Zurkow's "Crossing the Waters"

Mar 01, 2010

Bennington will celebrate the opening of Marina Zurkow's Crossing the Waters, an exhibition of seven animated single and multi-channel works, on Tuesday, March 2, from 6:30 to 8:00 pm in the College's Usdan Gallery. The event is free and open to the public.

A New York-based media artist, Zurkow's works comprise part of a series of animated paintings whose themes circulate around speculative fictions of the deluge and climate change; of water, ice, animals, and people. The pieces embody a tension between their cartoon forms, the natural sciences, eco-activism, and apocalyptic fantasy.

Accompanied by an essay by independent curator Michael Connor, Crossing the Waters will be on display in Usdan Gallery (open Tuesday through Saturday from 1:00 to 5:00 pm) until Saturday, March 27.
