Maria T.D. Inocencio and Mark R. Smith: Loss of Material Evidence
Loss of Material Evidence comprises work resulting from an ongoing conversation between collaborators and life partners, Maria T. D. Inocencio and Mark R. Smith, about the aging and passing of their parents. Through new work created specifically for this exhibition—some works made collaboratively and others made by the individual artists—Inocencio and Smith investigate the dispersion and disposal of material possessions—long associated with specific experiences or periods of time—from their family homes. The exhibition will examine topics such as loss, remembrance, legacy, the passage of time, and the making of art as a means to process grief through abstract visual language.until December 9

Gender and the Role of War Literature in Shaping Collective Memory: The Wartime Writings of Mary Borden
A Dixon Award Presentation by Katie Mitcheltree
Female voices are under-represented in the poetry of World War I, in part because of the belief that those who have not experienced combat cannot understand it, and therefore cannot communicate it to others. According to this “combat gnosticism,” only soldiers who fought in the trenches can write war poetry. But what of those non-combatants who worked close enough to the front that they were under direct threat from gunfire and artillery? What of those who dealt directly with the bloody aftermath of the war’s most devastating battles? Mary Borden, who published several poems while working at a field hospital on the Western front, is one such case.
