SAC’s current exhibition approaches the timely subject of water through the work of 18 national and international artists and artist groups. The ideas and methods presented are diverse and expansive, but, for this exhibition, specifically hone in on water’s histories, mythologies, and ecologies. Salina’s iconic Campbell’s Ferry of the nineteenth century, the defunct Sutro Baths of San Francisco, a touring freshwater drinking station, the romances and broken hearts of Niagara Falls, and apocalyptic narratives set on stormy seas are among the many subjects adrift in Streams. Bridging then and now, local and global, metaphoric and scientific, the installation aims to elevate public awareness of the essential role water plays in the world today, in order to forecast a hydrated tomorrow.
Exhibiting artists: Scott Anderson, Amy Balkin, Priti Cox, Ian Davis, Tony Feher, Amy Franceschini, Katie Holten, Sigalit Landau, Marie Lorenz, Mary Mattingly, Michael Jones McKean, Json Myers, Robyn O’Neil, Julia Oschatz, Alicia Pozniak, Leslie Shows, Alec Soth, spurse.
