This exhibition is a multi-disciplinary group exhibitions which proposes a fictional encounter with Hurston portrayed during the course work of students and faculty members of Rollins College, the University of Central Florida College of Arts & Humanities and other invited speakers.
On January 27, the UCF Art Gallery in cooperation with the UCF Africana program, will host ZORA! Festival 2016 event, which will include the programs in the library as well as a symposium featuring Eric Gottesman and other humanities scholars.
After the symposium, the attendees will be invited to the gallery to continue their conversations and appreciate Art gallery efforts to enliven Hurston’s legacy through contemporary arts. “The Encounter” will act as an interdisciplinary project that brings the strengths of a range of academic disciplines in concert to support an exploration of the African Diaspora.
“The Encounter” will query the artifice of borders between academic disciplines, and the shared heritage of African diasporic cultures. It will also present a wonderful opportunity – another encounter – to meet our colleagues and academics at Rollins and other local institutions. The exhibition will include contributions from students and faculty curated by Eric Gottesman. Eric is a Boston-basaed conceptual artist known for his use of photography to investigate history.
