THIS IS A PAST EVENT.
Join us the day after the MLK Holiday for a panel conversation and reception in honor of Terry Adkins’ video work, Flumen Ormantis (The Principalities) v.01.
Artist Terry Adkins’ video, Flumen Orationis, combines the audio of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King’s 1967 speech, “Why I am Opposed to the War in Vietnam” with Jimi Hendrix’s various performances of an antiwar ballad, “Machine Gun.” The audio plays over a series of stereographic images that animate early innovations in air travel from hot air balloons, to dirigibles, to small airplanes. Honoring Hendrix's time as a paratrooper in the Army’s 101st Airborne Division, Adkins creates a dense narrative of flight, liberation, and the complexities of war.
Panelists Paul Bright (WFU), Prof. David Aarons (UNCG), and Prof. Reagan Patrick Mitchell (UNCSA) will discuss their own artistic and historical research as it relates to Terry Adkins’ featured work
