On August 16, 2021, the US Bureau of Reclamation announced the first official shortage declaration for the Colorado River. For the seven US states along its course, this means new restrictions and a changed relationship not only to the river, but also to each other. The exhibition Along the Colorado seeks artists whose work explores issues around the Colorado river –its scarcity, use, commodification, conservation, legality, and politics–by creatives who reside in these states.
Curated by Sapira Cheuk, this exhibition is scheduled for August 2022 at the Nevada Humanities Program Gallery in Las Vegas and will mark the one-year anniversary of the shortage declaration.
Deadline: March 31, 2022.
All media are welcome, artists from California, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, Wyoming, Colorado, and New Mexico may apply. Space is limited at the Nevada Humanities Gallery, smaller works are encouraged. Artists may be responsible for shipping costs.
