Nadav Kander, Yangtze – The Long River (August 20 through December 23, 2014)

Over a period of three years, Nadav Kander photographed scenes he encountered on the banks of China’s Yangtze River. More people live along the Yangtze, the third longest river in the world, than in the United States. Kander followed the Yangtze upstream more than 4,100 miles from its mouth at the coast, where there is a high-traffic shipping port, toward The Three Gorges Dam, the largest in the world, past Chongqing, a rapidly expanding urban and economic center, to the river’s source in the Himalayan mountains. As he traveled, Kander was struck by the human and environmental impact of China’s dizzying rate of development. His photographs of the people and landscapes he encountered explore themes of impermanence and displacement, and ultimately question the price of progress.

The large format photos examine the environmental and human impact of modernization.

Clear Picture, Looking at Communities from an Art Museum (August 20 through December 23, 2014 and January 17 through May 17, 2015)

Over the course of the fall 2014 and spring 2015 semesters, the Haggerty will present this exhibition featuring diverse works from the museum’s permanent collection. Clear Picture is a faculty-student pilot project led by two Marquette faculty members. The exhibition will serve as a multi-disciplinary textbook and laboratory for four undergraduate Journalism and Spanish courses. Works will be added to the exhibit throughout each semester as students explore ways of constructing narratives through the selection and display of art.
