GETTING THERE

ANDREW ELLIS JOHNSON & SUSANNE SLAVICK
June 21 - August 7

GETTING THERE is an exhibition by the creative duo Andrew Ellis Johnson and Susanne Slavick, both faculty members from Carnegie Mellon University. The exhibition addresses timely themes surrounding peoples affected by migration due to war, famine, climate change, political repression, and social injustice.

It pairs ink and mixed media on paper works by Johnson, and oil and mixed media paintings on paper and panel by Slavick, with writings by novelists, poets, anthropologists and journalists who have informed their projects and whose words they have included or cited. Among them are Jenny Erpenbeck, Lev Golinkin, Eliza Griswold, Mohsin Hamid, Ali Johar, Maria Melendez Kelson, Jason De León, Blas Manuel de Luna, Suketu Mehta, Yasser Niksada, Prageeta Sharma, Warsan Shire, Wisława Szymborska, and Vu Tran.
