Along the Columbia River: Maya Lin and the Confluence Project

The exhibition is devoted to the Confluence Project, a series of six earthworks situated at historically significant points of contact between settler-colonists, Indigenous peoples, species, and ecologies along the Columbia River in Oregon and Washington. The show is featured as part of the international initiative Extraction: Art at the Edge of the Abyss, devoted to art and artists whose work addresses the environment and climate change. The Maxey Museum will display archival materials about the construction of the Confluence Project sites while addressing how the development of the Columbia River as an extractive resource has been shaped by legacies of racialized disenfranchisement, displacement, and violence over the past two centuries.
Open from 23 April 2021 to the end of Fall semester 2021, Wednesday-Saturday noon-4pm.

 

Friday, April 23 at 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm
