Slow Onset Events
February 11-still up....
Opening February 11, 9:00-10:00
hours by appointment 

 Slow Onset Events is an umbrella term for slow-acting climate change effects such as "sea level rise, increasing temperatures, ocean acidification, glacial retread and related impacts, salinization, land and forest degradation, loss of biodiversity and desertification."1 Through poetic sleight of hand, the work in this exhibition exemplifies the fear surrounding climate change while also offering a psychological-cum-superstitious solution for said fear

Adam Farcus is an artist, curator, and educator who currently lives and works in Baltimore, Maryland where he co-directs the alternative art space, Lease Agreement. He is also an adjunct instructor and gallery director at Hood College. His work has been exhibited at the Gallery 400, Chicago; University Galleries, Normal, IL; Hyde Part Arts Center, Chicago; Columbia College's A+D Gallery, Chicago; The Urban Institute for Contemporary Art, Grand Rapids; and the Miami Bridge Art Fair, Miami. Adam received his M.F.A. from the University of Illinois at Chicago, B.F.A. from Illinois State University, and A.A. from Joliet Junior College.
