Opening Reception: Land, Water and Rock

Land, Water and Rock is a retrospective of the work of nature photographer Debal Sen, based in Kolkata, India, who will give a talk during the opening reception.

Sen depicts forests, rivers, ocean and animals in a spectral light — neither day nor night, “suggesting a world, which, although elusive, can always be accessed by the ‘other world’ consciousness.” He is a cardiologist as well as a photographer, known for his books, Wild Bengal, Panch Kedar, Once Upon a Time and Shores.

This exhibition is among a wide-ranging series of campus events this academic year focused on South Asia.

Land, Water and Rock will be on display from Sept. 29 to Nov. 1.

Imagining America National Conference

UC Davis hosts the 17th national conference of Imagining America: Artists and Scholars in Public Life. The conference call for participation states: “We are in a period of pervasive polarization, in which fundamental issues of equity and inclusion are at stake. This extraordinary moment calls for an extraordinary vision of the future.” The conference theme is C.A.L.L. [Communities. Arts. Lands. Learning.] — inviting participants to challenge inequities, and work together toward envisioning and co-creating our future. The conference is a space where publicly engaged artists, designers, scholars, students and culture workers will come together for a three-day immersive experience to learn from one another about how the arts, humanities and design are being leveraged locally, regionally and nationally toward transformative action.
 
Imagining America, headquartered at UC Davis as of this summer, is a national consortium of university and cultural partners who advance public scholarship, community building and democratic practices through the arts, humanities and design.
 
The conference schedule includes workshops, roundtables and media presentations, and site-specific programs in Davis and the greater Sacramento area.

Register here.
