An exhibit on view at the Power Plant Gallery on the American Tobacco Campus—In Practice: Work by Duke Arts Faculty—includes works in a wide range of media—photography, film and video, printmaking, new media—by seventeen Duke faculty members and instructors from three arts units at the university: the Center for Documentary Studies (CDS), the Department of Art, Art History and Visual Studies (AAHVS), and the Program in Arts of the Moving Image (AMI). The exhibition provides a lens through which to visualize the remarkably interdisciplinary nature of the arts at Duke, as well as the dynamic and diverse energy of the Triangle arts scene. In Practice will be on view through December 13.

The Power Plant Gallery at American Tobacco Campus is a joint initiative of Duke’s Center for Documentary Studies and MFA in Experimental and Documentary Arts program.  A laboratory for the arts, the gallery provides ongoing opportunities for the Duke and Durham communities to engage with documentary and experimental art practices through exhibition and study of work that considers the essential role and transformative capacity of the arts in society.
