The annual LGBTQ at Union exhibition returns this fall to the Wikoff Student Gallery, September 4th through December 14th, 2015. This year the exhibition will again coincide with October’s LGBTQ History Month and National Coming Out Day, which is Sunday, October 11th, and will include work in painting, photography, digital art, short historical fiction, and film by current Union College professors, students and recent alumni.
In conjunction with the 40th annual New York African Studies Association (NYASA) Conference, to be held at Union College April 3rd, 2015, the Wikoff Student Gallery presents an exhibition of photography by Union students and alumni who have participated in term abroad programs and Minerva Fellowships in Eqypt, Ethiopia, Senegal, South Africa, and Uganda.
“By using the software package Cinema 4D, a tool designed to allow our biology to interact with virtuality, the artists in the exhibition Palpably Synthetic chronicle the art that can be generated inside our new digital horizon. Approaching concept from a variety of perspectives, all the artists in this exhibition share the common bond of venturing bravely into the hybrid universe of the digital mind; a future reality that will not be foreign, but that we will all recognize as home.” – Fernando Orellana
