All Day
Printstallation Invasion: Eunkang Koh
Location: FAC Gallery
Description:

Printstallation Invasion is a solo exhibition that combines printmaking, soft sculpture and installation. The exhibition focuses on social phenomena in our contemporary consumerist society.  Eunkang Koh believes that the lifestyle and thinking processes of humans are ruled by money and capitalism. Society’s goals are to become richer and wealthier so that we can consume even more. Consumption, driven by endless desires, triggers identity crises. Trying to fit into this consumer culture makes individuals lose their own identities and personalities. A combination of animal and human creatures represent a portrait of us, humans as social animals and the society that we live in. She portrays a society we are living in through the creation of creature hybrids, which express the absurdity of the human world.  They portray ironic gestures that create a mixture of humor and grotesqueness, reflecting life in our consumerist society.  The creatures are symbolic of those humans who are dimwitted and un-knowing, or who choose not to see anything beyond the ‘facts’ that they are taught.

This exhibition is curated by Professor Marilee Salvator.

PHOTO EXHIBIT -- Living On A Dollar A Day: The lives and faces of the world’s poor
Location: MMTH Gallery and Atrium, 1666 Normal Drive, WKU Campus
Description:

The School of Journalism & Broadcasting is excited to offer a photographic and interactive exhibition of photographs that promises to change the way you look at the world.

Living On A Dollar A Day: The Lives and Faces of the World’s Poor, is a powerful and extraordinary series of photographs and profiles by Pulitzer Prize winning photojournalist Renée C. Byer, whose work illuminates the human faces of people who live in extreme poverty around the world. Traveling to 10 countries on four continents, Byer sought out individuals and families on the brink of survival – living on about one U.S. dollar each day.

The people in Byer’s compelling profiles share their hardships, their joys, and their dreams for the future with her. Often with little hope of changing their own destiny, they dream of something better for their children. In her searing and tender images, accompanied by stories shared by people whose trust she gained, Byer gives voice to those who would not otherwise be heard.

The exhibit will be available beginning Thursday, Feb. 16, through Friday, April 28.
