Last Thursday, the Bowdoin College Museum of Art (BCMA) opened “Currents: Art Since 1875,” an exhibition of contemporary and modern art centered on three themes: “Labor / Bodies,” “Migration / Environment,” and “Inspiration / Appropriation.” BCMA Curator Casey Braun selected the works shown in the collection in conjunction with a sister exhibition, “Threads: Artists Weave their Worlds,” which adjoins “Currents.” Braun’s background in global Indigenous art at the University of Kansas’ Spencer Museum of Art carries forward in “Currents.” When she arrived at Bowdoin fourteen months ago, she was particularly excited about the College’s collection.
Last Tuesday, the College hosted associate professor of history and environment and society at Brown University Bathsheba Demuth to give a talk entitled “The Reindeer at the End of the World: Apocalypse, Climate and Soviet Dreams.” The lecture, sponsored by the Environmental Studies Program, expanded on themes from Demuth’s debut book “Floating Coast: An Environmental History of the Bering Strait.” Professor of History and Environmental Studies Connie Chiang organized the event in conjunction with her advanced environmental science seminar.
