The Darkened Mirror: Global Perspectives on Water

San Jose Museum of Art

Artists from around the globe explore our conflicted relationship with water from a 21st-century point of view. These artists use video and installation to address issues such as water access and ownership in Cambodia, agricultural irrigation in the American Southwest, the ethical implications of desert settlements, and river pollution in India. The exhibition will include work by Vibha Galhotra (India), Gerco de Ruijter (The Netherlands), Amy Balkin (United States), Khvay Samnang (Cambodia), and Jesper Just (United States).

This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock had to say about The Darkened Mirror: Global Perspectives on Water :

This group exhibition featuring a global roster considers the ways in which water has become contested territory, not only for the constant environmental threats against this resource, but for the ways in which global waterways have become intensely politicized territories. Featuring works by Vibha Galhotra, Gerco de Ruijter, Khvay Samnang, Jesper Just and Amy Balkin.
