Le Sang Noir

February 15-March 31

In 2010, Louisiana-based artist and biologist Brandon Ballengée saw firsthand the largest environmental disaster in United States history—the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Le Sang Noir (“Black Blood”) is a visual response to this tragedy. Locked in jars, suspended in alcohol, posed in petri dishes, Ballengée’s forms tell stories of species altered and obliterated. His prints, sculptures, and field projects are a narrative of human impact in the Anthropocene. By implicating us in their creation, the projects also inspire us to learn more about life in these complex, often fragile ecosystems. Le Sang Noir will be on display from February 15 through March 31.

Stored

January 7 – March 31

Do you ever wonder what is hidden behind the museum’s store room doors? MoFA’s permanent collection spaces will be under renovation during the spring semester, and guest curators from departments throughout the College of Fine Arts will be given the opportunity to arrange, rearrange, and change your viewpoint on some of the “biggest” works in our collection.  Six iterations of “Stored” will fill the Lower Gallery from January 7 through March 31.

68:18  Student Protest in Print

February 15-March 31

In the spring of May 1968, an occupation begun by a group of French students grew to one of the largest demonstrations in modern history. Striking workers and protesters brought Paris to a halt, and the posters and graffiti that amplified their message have become part of our visual vernacular. With original artwork that was posted on the streets of Paris fifty years ago and contemporary prints influenced by current student led gun violence protests, this exhibition explores the role of graphic art in political organizing.  

Visualizing the Invisible “Jungle” of Calais

February 15-March 31

Since 1999, individuals fleeing conflicts or escaping poverty in the Balkans, the Horn of Africa, Sudan, and the Middle East have come to Calais in hopes of crossing the English Channel on the boats, trains, trucks, and buses that move between France and the U.K.  Temporary camps – often referred to as “jungles” – have proliferated, and their periodic demolition has come to be seen as emblematic of the “European migration crisis.” Eric Leleu’s photographs document this changing landscape of watchtowers, barbed-wire fences, flooded zones, walls, and surveillance cameras and explore these failed attempts to control migration and the resilient presence of migrants in and around Calais.
