NEC Art Gallery Announces Additional Fall Exhibit
The Gallery at New England College presents Project Tandem: Conserve. Record. Change. A Photographic Exhibit About the Environment in the Balcony Gallery September 12 through October 22. The public is invited to a reception on Saturday, October 2 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Project Tandem is a photographic exhibit chronicling an 11,000 mile bike ride by two photographers who documented Americans’ feelings about the environment through images and words. New York photographers Morrigan McCarthy and Alan Winslow recently completed a one year, 11,000 mile bicycle ride around the United States. Project Tandem is the multimedia result of that journey’s goal: to photograph and interview everyday Americans about their views on the environment and climate change. Their ride took them from Rockland, Maine; to St. Augustine, Florida; to San Diego, California; to Seattle, Washington; and then brought them back to New York through the American Midwest. They rode through thirty states, photographing and interviewing hundreds of people, ultimately creating this exhibition of portraits and a looping video track of voices from all over America speaking candidly about the environment.
“This work illuminates the differences in opinion between regions and individuals, but somehow also brings us all together,” said the photographers.
McCarthy and Winslow have also published a book, Project Tandem, a compilation of photographs and dialog from their journey. For more information on Project Tandem, please visit www.projecttandem.org.
Admission to the Gallery is free. Gallery hours are: Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and Fridays from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Weekends are by appointment. For more information, call the Gallery at 603-428-2329.
