About the exhibition:
Seven photographers who live and work along the Front Range will be featured in FLOOD, an exhibition of photography curated by Mark Sink that captures the elemental power of the 2013 flood in Boulder. This exhibit opens Wednesday, September 10 at the Dairy Center for the Arts in Boulder and will be open to the public through Friday, October 10. Both exhibits open with Artist Talks from 4:00pm to 5:00pm, followed by a reception from 5:00pm to 6:30pm. Both the exhibits and the opening event are free to the public.
Initially called a hundred-year flood, it has since been described as a thousand-year-flood due to its duration and vast proportions. The exhibition reflects the dialectic contradictions of such a life-changing event: destruction and regeneration, loss and restoration; catastrophe and beauty. These are the forces witnessed and articulated by the featured photographers, James Balog, Andrew Beckham, Chris Brown, Charles Forsman, Katie Harwood, Kevin O’Connell, and Richard Van Pelt.
One of the featured photographers, Andrew Beckham, says about the commemorative exhibit at The Dairy, "Beginning on September 11, 2013 Colorado communities along the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains experienced an unbroken deluge of rain and flooding for nearly a week. This unprecedented weather event flooded basements, destroyed roads, pulled down canyon walls, changed the course of rivers, and washed away entire homes. The aftermath can still be seen today, as people and communities affected by the water continue to rebuild their lives.”
“Collectively, these photographers examine the reality of a transformed landscape in all of its complexities, from intimate details to sweeping panoramas, giving rise to responses that all, in the end, reflect a deep and abiding concern for the landscape of home."
