Power Plant Gallery at Duke University
320 Blackwell Street, Durham, North Carolina 27701
Join us at the Power Plant Gallery for a public discussion exploring the intersection of activism and art in response to the threat of nuclear war. Held in conjunction with the Power Plant Gallery's exhibit of artist Erin Johnson’s The Way Things Can Happen, which revisits the 1983 made-for-tv movie The Day After, the discussion will include Erin Johnson, UNC-Chapel Hill artist and professor elin o’Hara slavick, Durham-based freelance photographer, activist, and former social worker Jenny Warburg, and Mandy Carter, a life-long member of the pacifist-based War Resisters League.

In addition to looking back to reactions to nuclear proliferation in the 1980s, we'll talk about the role of documentary and experimental arts in activism, connections and disjunctions among anti-war activism of the past and today's local social movements, and the role of women in documenting and resisting state-sponsored violence.

Free and open to the public. Light lunch served.
