Curated by Danielle Eubank and Sandra Mueller, the “Water Imbalance” exhibition is set to coincide with the 2015 Balance UnBalance Conference at Arizona State University in Tempe from March 27-29, 2015. The eight women artists in the exhibition work in a variety of media including painting, photography, drawing and installation. The artworks speak to the preciousness of water—especially in women’s lives—and the considerable impact of drought. Short written statements by each artist challenge viewers to consider their own ideas about the imbalance of clean, available water without an apparent solution. The conference brings multiple disciplines together with participants coming from 24 countries to the ASU campus. The conference theme, ‘Water, Climate, Place: Re-Imagining Environments’ aims to provoke discussion and reflection on how our climate is changing and what our future might hold.
Participating artists: Kim Abeles, Sukey Bryan, Eco-Art Collective, Elizabeth Damon, Danielle Eubank, J. J. L’Heureux, Sandra Mueller and Melissa Reischman.
