The Neutral Zone

Imprint: The World to Come A youth response to the exhibition at UMMA

UMMA is working with the Neutral Zone to bring young minds, talents, and interpretations to the table in response to UMMA's exhibition of The World to Come: Art In the Age of the Anthropocene (April 27 - July 28, 2019). High school students, working with Neutral Zone resident artist, Sajeev Visweswaran, will create multicolored serigraphy poster images in response to this exhibition. Students working in different media such as music, video, and poetry are also invited to create work. Themes from the exhibition that will prompt the student's work will include environmental devastation, justice, and action.  All works created as a result of this partnership will be on display at the 37th Potential Exhibition, opening at the Neutral Zone on April 27 and on view through May 1, 2019.
