One of the great things about being employed by a State University of New York is that I am privy to a lot of cultural and artistic events that come through the college. During one of my lunch breaks this past week, I slipped over to the Charles B. Wang Center to see the current exhibit that is on display there. The Wang Center has long been my favorite building on the campus and its cavernous halls are an excellent place to showcase art.
As the brochure for this event cites:
"At a time when issues of sustainability and environmentalism are increasingly the focus of public attention, Recycling and Reincarnation: Exhibition of Industrial Design, Installation, and Mixed Media Arts features works from artists affiliated with East China Normal University in Shanghai, PRC. Recycling and Reincarnation explores the connections of recycling as an environmental or industrial practice with cyclicality of life, spirit, and history. Some works are artistic reflections or meditations on these themes, while others imagine creative sustainable technology."
This fascinating exhibit will be on display at the Charles B. Wang Center at Stony Brook University through November 6, 2011. Cheers!
