About the 2022 MWSPE Regional Conference: This year's theme highlights works concerned with the ebb and flow of social, political, and artistic trends and how these tropes and themes can return with differing focus and intensity. This conference and corresponding exhibitions focus on the incoming swell of ideas, explorations, and concerns of artists within the Midwest and how they see, process, and contextualize the recurrence and reemergence of social, political, and artistic tropes and trends in their own practices. In turn, this conference will serve as an artistic interpretation of world events / records from the perspective of artists from across the Midwest.
Artist gallery talk and reception featuring Middle Eastern/Lebanese cuisine.
A walking tour will leave the gallery to Mill Creek at 7pm. Once on the creek, viewers will experience artist performances.
Opening reception with Society of Photographic Education Women's Caucus Chair, Sarah Ann Austin, in conversation with Xavier University Art Department Chair, Suzanne Chouteau, and Curator, Jordanne Renner.
