Exhibition Description
shadows traces undercurrents is an exhibition co-curated by Christine Baeumler and Joyce Lyon, faculty members in the University of Minnesota Department of Art and members of the international artist/academic networks Mapping Spectral Traces and PLaCE. These networks are interdisciplinary associations committed to socially engaged creative practice. The artists have worked collaboratively and individually on projects that ‘map’ the unseen and unacknowledged pasts that continue to structure present-day social relations. They often work with and in traumatized communities, contested lands, and diverse environments. The shadows traces undercurrents exhibition features local, national and international artists working in a variety of media. The exhibition is associated with the Mapping Spectral Traces symposium and performances scheduled for October 18 and 19. For more information:
