The Treachery of Ourselves

08/29/19 09:00AM - 06:00PM

The Treachery of Ourselves - Main Library Gallery

Artist Jessica McGhee brings us her work using waste, much of which was found on beaches.  This show explores our relationship to convenience, the waste that we create in pursuit of that convenience, and what that leaves for future generations. Although not a biological entity, she has come to see garbage as a parasite or an infection, and this was forefront in her mind as this series was created. An opening reception will be held on Saturday, August 3 from 3:00 to 5:00.  Free and open to the public.

Location: Peoria Public Library - Peoria, Illinois
