Call & Response: Borders - Exhibition Opening Lecture & Reception

Call & Response is an annual exhibition of collaborations between writers and visual artists, in which ones calls and one responds. The result is a dynamic set of paired works of words and artistic media that resonate and speak to contemporary issues. The theme for the twelfth annual Call & Response is Borders.


What are borders? How do we define them and how do they define us? A river, a mountain range, a line scrawled on a map, the skin enveloping the body, the boundary between one mind and another. Borders are the edges that separate us, but they are also the lines, categories, and groups that define us. Emotional, physical, and metaphorical borders have been drawn around people, around land, and around ideas in the name of protection, defense, inclusion, and exclusion.

 
Call & Response: Borders will be on display from Wednesday, October 10 – Sunday, November 18, 2018 in Fenwick Gallery, housed in Fenwick Library on George Mason University’s Fairfax Campus. An opening reception and panel discussion with the artists is scheduled for Wednesday, October 10. More information can be found at http://fenwickgallery.gmu.edu/exhibits/borders.
 
Call & Response is a collaboration between the School of Art, the English Department’s MFA program in Creative Writing, and University Libraries presented in conjunction with the Fall for the Book festival.
