The Human Traces have been lost | Hellinikon Airport

This body of work is a triptych research and a cultural excavation on the parallels of the current distressed Greek economy, the descent of Olympic Airways (OA) and the ruins of Hellinikon former international airport, as part of an ambitious redevelopment plan. All three aspects are interwoven traces of Aristotle Onassis’ bloodline, OA disintegration, Greece’s economy and the nations antigovernment feelings leading into modern ruins.    

The body of work consists of vintage photographs, documents found in the ruins and images from the Hellinikon international airport, in Athens, Greece. 

While researching how the economy of Greece collapsed, how OA departed from its golden era and interviewing staff members of the former airport and OA, a pattern from the administrational inefficiency in the company became noticeably similar to that of the country’s. There are numerous collateral mismanagements in the way both the company and the country were handled.

New NDSU art exhibit reflects how society views America

FARGO—A new art exhibit at NDSU is reflecting on how society views America.

The exhibit at the Memorial Union Gallery is titled "State of The Union."

The gallery addresses themes discussed in the news this year, including: immigration, gun control, the economy and sexual orientation.

Artists from across the country contributed to the exhibit.

The idea is to get thinking about what they care about politically, since President Trump's inauguration.

"It looks at where America is one year later, it makes you think about what's changed but also what has stayed the same," said Anthony Faris, Gallery Coordinator.

The Gallery will run until March 1 and is open to the public.

MU Gallery ‘State of the Union’ Exhibit

 The Memorial Union Gallery is hosting the “State of the Union” exhibit through March 1. The Gallery is open from 9 a.m to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday for the public and showcases works from across the nation.
Kelly Schlagel, one of the gallery’s organizers, announced the reception for Feb. 13. The reception, according to Schlagel, is a time when people who are involved with the gallery, including the artists and the juror, will talk about the works of art and the overall theme of the gallery.

Schlagel said the arts, in general, tend toward the left of the political spectrum, but that the exhibit seems “pretty well represented.” Schlagel notices some pieces that are “either ambiguous and moderate or a little bit more right.”
