CHRISTINE ROGERS: THE DREAM POOL
Leu Art Gallery (Belmont University) / 1907 Belmont Blvd. March 11 - May 24th (Reception: March 14 4:00pm - 6:00pm)
The Dream Pool is comprised of 15 years of photographic work and archival newspaper texts from 1833-1835 that are intertwined with personal narrative. The images were made in three countries - Switzerland, the United States and India. The content and story line span two centuries, while the personal narrative spans several generations. This project has been supported by two Fulbright research scholarships (2012-2013 and 2018-2019), and it is the result of Christine Rogers' Fall 2022 sabbatical.
