FACING FIRE OPENING EXHIBIT AT THE UCR CALIFORNIA MUSEUM OF PHOTOGRAPHY
February 29, 2020 –
Join Inlandia for the opening exhibit of Facing Fire at the UCR California Museum of Photography on February 29th at 6pm.
Fire as omen and elemental force, as metaphor and searing personal experience -- these are the subjects explored by the artists of Facing Fire. California's diverse ecologies are fire-prone, fire-adapted, even fire-dependent. In the past two decades, however, West Coast wildfires have exploded in scale and severity. There is a powerful consensus that we have entered a new era. The artists of Facing Fire bring us incendiary work from active fire lines and psychic burn zones. They face fire, sift its aftermath, and struggle with the implications.
The UCR Museum of Photography is located at 3824 Main St, Riverside, CA 92501.
