Impaired Perceptions by Brian Charles Steel (one day only)
September 16, 2015
Lewandowski Student Gallery
Artist Talk: 5 PM, Dina’s Place
Reception: 6 PM Lewandowski Student Gallery

To kick off Winthrop’s October celebration of Disability Month, guest speaker, Brian Charles Steel will be on campus September 16, 2015 along with an installation of his photographs, “Impaired Perceptions.” Born with short fiber syndrome, Steels’ black and white portraits of himself and other physically impaired people explores the concept of perception and socially constructed identity. Some of his subjects have physical impairments that are not visible, which further challenges the notion that seeing is believing.

In conjunction with the upcoming Water in the World: Interdisciplinary Approaches to Access and Sustainability Conference, the semester long exhibition Man + Land + Water creates a visual dialog examining global water issues to raise awareness about the earth’s fragility, water’s preciousness and how our human role impacts this precarious situation. The exhibition brings together national and international artists and designers exploring the current global condition and creative solutions to issues of access and sustainability through video, drawing, interactive media, printmaking, industrial and graphic design.

Educational Programming:
Film Screening: Watermark – Q&A to follow led by Matt Heard, Assistant Professor of Biology

Watermark is a feature documentary from multiple-award winning filmmakers Jennifer Baichwal and Nick de Pencier, and renowned photographer Edward Burtynsky. The film examines the relationship between mankind and water. The filmmakers travel to various locations around the world — from deserts, to tanneries, to one of the biggest dams in the world — to showcase how the liquid shapes people’s lives, as well as how humanity affects this precious resource. A free global cultural event, the screening of Watermark is open to the public and is sponsored by the DSU and Winthrop University Galleries. A question & answer session will follow the screening. 2013, Canada, 92 mins.

LAST FISH ON EARTH: Our Happy Re-Granulated Future

Artist Talk: Monday, September 21, 2015, 7 p.m. Rutledge 119, Rutledge Building

The water quality in our worlds’ oceans is at a critical tipping point. Plastic pollution is a primary culprit in degrading the ocean environment and threatening its inhabitants. Creating a rising tide of plastic water, Charzewski and Ludwig’s site-specific installation offers the viewer a glimpse into the future, as if there was no more clear water in the ocean, but only seas of broken-down plastic, and its one remaining inhabitant.
