New multidisciplinary exhibit on display in Duke Hall Gallery explores themes of race and colonization
Duke Hall Gallery of Fine Art. Although not as obvious to any Duke passing by on the quad, the School of Art Design and Art History resides behind the Music Building, and from now until March 7th, it’s the home of JMU’s latest art exhibit; Honey and Sweetgrass: by Skeena Reece, which is open Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s from 11am to 5pm.
Probably one of the most impactful exhibits is this nine-minute video titled, “Touch Me”, which focuses on Reece’s home of Canada and the traumatic history of removing indigenous children from their families to attend residential schools. The haunting sound of water pouring during this bath is the only noise echoing around the exhibit.
