“The Ese’Eja People of the Amazon: Connected by a Thread”

On view 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday through August 15

This show consists of photographs and daguerreotypes made by Andrew Bale and University of Delaware photography faculty Jon Cox, as well as artifacts curated by Dr. Monica Dominguez Torres and Dr. Vicki Cassman that are part of the daily life of the Ese’Eja, one of the few extant foraging societies of Peru. This exhibit illustrates not only a worldview, a way of life and a heritage, but also the contemporary challenges facing these resilient people as Amazonia loses many of its indigenous cultures along with the deep knowledge and wisdom these cultures have of the interconnectedness of nature.

With floor-to-ceiling windows and 5,000 square feet of exhibition space, the Toni & Stuart B. Young Gallery offers a dramatic first glimpse of DCAD for even the casual passerby. The Young Gallery, which is located on the first floor of the DCAD academic building at Sixth and Market Streets, is open to the public seven days a week. Exhibition receptions are held in conjunction with Art Loop Wilmington on the first Friday of most months of the year. As a transparent and accessible interface with the community, the Young Gallery gives students the opportunity to exhibit the best work they create as part of their curriculum to diverse local and regional audiences. It also allows students to experience work that supplements and enriches their studio experiences. In addition to shows of student and faculty work, DCAD mounts curated exhibitions featuring work of regional and national significance.
