The Global Understanding Research Initiative is pleased to announce our 25 selected artists for the exhibition, Import/Export. From April- May 2021, each image will be printed onto an 84” x 60” canvas and stretched over a metal frame for display throughout Kent State campus in a public (outdoor) exhibition. Given the imbalances and inequalities of import/export systems around the globe, this exhibition invites artists to reflect on the ways in which imports and exports affect their local spaces. How does the movement of people (immigration, tourism, etc.), goods (manufactured, agricultural, etc.), and/or information (data, digital media, etc.) affect local communities, politics, economies, and environments? Examples of relevant topics include, but are not limited to: impacts related to migration, tourism, food cultures, natural resources, agriculture, manufactured goods, digital information, and cultural expressions.
