Out of the Depths: 

An exhibition exploring the complex nature of the migrant crisis 

January 15–March 15, 2018
Gallery Reception and Artist Talk: February 24, 2-4 p.m. EST
Fadi BouKaram, Untitled.

Out of the Depths is a collaborative traveling art exhibition that investigates the current migrant crisis from the perspective of a Lebanese street photographer (Fadi BouKaram, Beirut, Lebanon) and an American painter (Joe Cory, Birmingham, Alabama). In the exhibit, powerful images of the Middle East are juxtaposed with paintings based on filtered information mediated by American news sources. Motifs of water and navigational symbols further pervade the imagery, as viewers confront themes of proximity and distance along with complex images of humanity and assumptions of what it means to be living as a refugee. The exhibition is curated by Matt Schneider (Birmingham, Alabama).
