"My Family is Everything/ Mi Familia Es Todo" Art Exhibit

  • 11/8/2016 - 11/12/2016 10:00 a.m.
  • 11/14/2016 - 11/19/2016 10:00 a.m.

  • 12/12/2016 - 12/15/2016 10:00 a.m.
The gallery is open from 10 am- 6 pm, Monday-Friday, and 10 am- 2 pm on Saturday. The exhibition runs from November 8, 2016- January 27, 2017. New Mexico calls itself the land of enchantment, but it can be the land of entrapment to those who grew up there. Like Odysseus, we yearn to leave our home seeking opportunities and adventures it lacks. We want to travel far, to experience new things, places, and spaces, and cross vast oceans and hot deserts, sometimes leaving with not even knowing the reason why. The elation of heading out west on the open road to the coast was hit head on by the harsh coldness of the city, and the real price of those opportunities so far from home and family. Photographing and documenting the stories of my family and friends in New Mexico creates a history that represents the struggles of communities too often left out of mainstream history books and media. I record family, friends and mentors using video and photography to bring forward these stories of personal, family, and societal struggles.

The Whitworth University Art Department is proud to present five photographs from Chris Jordan’s series entitled Midway: Message from the Gyre. Since 2009, Jordan has repeatedly traveled to Midway Atoll to document the albatross living on the island. The photographs show the bodies of chicks who have died because their parents inadvertently ingested plastic debris while gathering food and then regurgitated it for their offspring. Unable to digest the trash, the chicks die of starvation or toxicity. As the bodies decompose, the startling contents of their stomachs are exposed. The five photographs in the exhibition were recently added to the Whitworth Permanent Art Collection with the support of the Floyd and Shirley Daniel Endowment, which was established in 2008 to support photography and the role of photography in the arts, creation-care programs and environmental and sustainability education for students.
