Join us for a special brunch reception at the Coconino Center for the Arts to see the new art exhibition, Echoes of Loss. During the midday opening, mimosas and breakfast foods will be served along with ambient live music. The curators and some of the participating artists will be in attendance to talk about the exhibition with patrons.
Echoes of Loss: Artistic Responses to Trauma is an invitational art exhibition that explores artistic responses to loss and catastrophe. More than a dozen artists from all over the world will participate with works of art in photography, textiles, sculpture, film, printmaking and installation art. Tracing a range of visual approaches to trauma, the exhibition uncovers the ways that works of art can draw us closer into losses that remain unknowable, bringing articulation to that which refuses to be articulated.
Following the reception is a concert at 1pm featuring the Arizona Mountain Chorale in the theater of the Coconino Center for the Arts.
Echoes of Loss will be open during regular gallery hours from April 10 through June 9, 2018.
The exhibition is curated by Bjorn Krondorfer and Tara Kohn. Krondorfer is the Director of the Martin-Springer Institute & Endowed Professor of Religious Studies at Northern Arizona University. Kohn is the Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Art History at Bowdoin College. The exhibition is produced in partnership by the Flagstaff Arts Council and the Martin-Springer Institute at Northern Arizona University.
