LAND BODY INDUSTRY, Katherine E. Nash Gallery, University of Minnesota, 2018

Artists in the Exhibition: Lamia Abukhadra, Julie Reneé Benda, Leslie Grant, Alexa Horochowski, Rini Yun Keagy, Alison Malone, Monica Sheets, Nina Pessin-Whedbee, and Josh Winkler.

Each work in the exhibition is both tethered to a specific locale and connected to a globalized tale. Whether originating in a desire for conquest, a need for survival, or consumer demands, industry generates a recurring story of transformation, loss, and sometimes reinvention. Works in the exhibition traverse across time and place, recounting narratives of industry stretching from the west to the east coasts of the United States and beyond.
