Opening in Portland Tomorrow Night

June 22, 2011

Drawn to Disaster opens tomorrow night from 6-8 and runs through August 7 at the Maine College of Art‘s Institute of Contemporary Art in Portland, Maine. The show will feature works by Anthony Campuzano, Dave McKenzie, Christian Holstad, Carlos Motta, Sun Xun, Dominic McGill, Stacy Howe, Deb Sokolow, Yael Bartana, Daniel Guzmán, and Lisi Raskin. The ICA’s website describes the upcoming show saying

“In this age of the 24-hour news cycle the media bombards us with sensationalist imperatives, looking towards the next storyline, ignoring the vulnerability of those left behind when journalists leave. In this exhibition artists examine the ephemerality of news reports and conjure the complexities of disorder, anger, and optimism that can follow disaster.”

If you’re in the area, think about stopping by. The ICA is a neat space where there’s always something new going on, and this show is going to be worth a look.
