The Paul W. Zuccaire Gallery is proud to present an online Faculty Exhibition featuring the work of Stony Brook University’s world-renowned faculty artists. RECKONING presents artwork created in the past year that expresses a range of individual and collective experiences we are living through and the underlying conditions that have brought us to this crossroads.

In 2020, we are experiencing a pandemic, quarantine, major changes to how we work and live, support of essential workers, xenophobia, racial injustice, Black Lives Matter protests, political activism and divisiveness, controversy over monuments, climate change, #MeToo, uncertainty of the future, and more. In light of the challenges the world is facing today, creative responses form a crucial component of expression, activism and hope for the future.

The online exhibition includes work specifically created for a virtual presentation, such as digital media and text pieces, as well as photography, drawing, painting, sculpture, video, mixed reality and sound.

The artists will discuss their work as it relates to the theme of Reckoning in two online Salon Talks. Click here for more information and Zoom links.

A related online student community forum, RECKONING: Student Digital Mural, includes artwork, poems and writings by Stony Brook University students from across campus and around the globe.
