The Bank Left Gallery is proud to present installations by late WSU Sociology Professor and Affiliated Professor of Fine Arts, Eugene A. Rosa. Gene was an environmentalist and artist who focused on social, political, and cultural issues and their impact on the environment.
The Bank Left will be presenting 48 pieces of his work: Installations, Love, and Environment on October 18. The opening reception is from 12:00pm - 3:00pm with a Luncheon/Autumn Tea at the Bank Left Bistro from 12:00 - 2:00.
The term Ecolage is used to describe much of Gene's art. In Gene's words, Ecolage emphasizes the manipulation of ordinary or found objects to produce new forms of reality. At its core, Ecolage is an artistic expression of ecological sensibility. This is not a passive outcome of art for art's sake, but an active relationship between the artist and the world... Ecolage can provide both the mental template and aesthetic sensibility needed to guide our solutions. As art, it springs from the same creative urge as does science and technology. It is another rationality, another tool of human creation. And many tools are needed...
Gene's work was interdisciplinary and influential among scholars in the social, ecological and physical sciences. One major focus of his work was the importance of a larger vision to deal with waste. What are the earth's ecological limits for absorbing the garbage of high modernism?
The Bank Left is very honored to exhibit his work.
This Exhibit runs from October 18 - November 1
