This event has ended.

Out of the community-based painting project, Smoke and Water (2014-2017), represented in the show by four large canvases that addressed the coal ash spill on the Dan River in Virginia and North Carolina, Lindquist began examining the larger system of coal electricity—the material sources and means of production, as well as how the geographical sites of electric plants are situated within residential communities in rural areas and how this disproportionately impacts people of color and economic disadvantage. Last summer, he photographed six of the largest coal-fired electric plants in the United States in Texas, Alabama, North Carolina, and Georgia, translating these digital images into the materiality of oil and coal ash in acrylic paint on linen-stretched canvases.
