Until August 28 | Jacob Lawrence Gallery
the Jacob Lawrence Gallery + Northwest Film Forum proud to present Lux Aeterna, an exhibition featuring 16 local, national and international artists working in a wide variety of media to explore the mutability of media created and consumed using ever-changing platforms.
This exhibition examines how technological, economic and cultural forces shape the way we produce, share and experience media – and how these media in turn influence our aesthetics and values. By retracing the currents of technical migration and circulation of images, the exhibition raises topical questions about property and loyalty. He experiments with media as a tool for empowerment in a time of existential uncertainty. And he wonders if the media, like light, could outlive humanity, sending a message forever.

What is human anyway?
The “human” is a category historically constructed with political and social action, and in Western science and culture, he makes a hierarchical distinction from other animals and life forms. In this process of differentiation, animality has been racialized and used as a means of limiting freedom and protections to those members of humanity who threaten a fantasy of white superiority. How do these hierarchies and distinctions persist in the development of political and social relations? How could interspecies thinking reveal new opportunities for liberation work through different forms of oppression brought about by racism, sexism, imperialism and capitalism? And, thinking beyond the animal, how could we turn to other forms of interspecies connections and multispecies agencies to recalibrate the human sense of survival on our damaged planet? ? This registered event sponsored by the Henri art gallery answers these questions and more.
