The Department of Visual and Performing Arts invite you to the Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus to view work by artist Nick Vyssotsky.

The second show in the exhibition series
Nature Endangered: Imagination and Environment

Nowhere Zone: The Pre-Apocalyptic Landscape is an ongoing project that explores spaces of flight, symbols of control, and identifications of cultural ephemera, refuse, and waste. Since the November election, the term "dystopia" has been increasingly applied, not to some possible future scenario, but in the present tense. As the effects of climate change continue to gradually degrade our environment and an apathetic (or actively antagonistic) government causes more Americans to fall into poverty, it would seem that Armageddon will not occur as one quick cataclysmic event that shifts us from a world of stability to one of chaos, but as a slow, entropic decline into disarray.
