Join us for a reception to celebrate a two-part exhibition organized by students as their final project for the fall 2019 course “Love, Sex, and Death in the Anthropocene,” taught by Associate Professor of English Kate Singer. Student and faculty readings will begin at 4:30 pm and will include contributions from Michelle Markley, Kevin Surprise, Iyko Day, and Andrea Lawlor. Free and open to the public.

About the exhibition:
Alternate Endings: Conversations on Climate Change puts objects from the Museum’s collection in dialogue with new student-created artworks, on view in the Hinchcliff Reception Hall (January 29 - February 28, 2020) as well as the Carson Teaching Gallery (January 29 - February 2, 2020). Following their study of scientific, philosophical, and aesthetic rhetorics for communicating and understanding climate change and our place within it, students are excited to share these conversations with the wider campus and surrounding communities.

The exhibition was made possible by the English Department, the Environmental Studies Department, the Critical Social Thought program, the Weissman Center for Leadership, the Mount Holyoke College Art Museum, the Teaching and Learning Initiative, the Dean of Students, and the Miller Worley Center for the Environment.
