New Art Exhibit Opens: REDACTED: Transparency, Democracy & Nuclear Power
They say: The truth isn’t always black or white….but what if it was, and you still couldn’t tell?
As we mark the fourth anniversary of the ongoing nuclear disaster at Fukushima, we reflect on the Japanese government’s final verdict: The tragedy was a product of collusion and lack of transparency by the nuclear industry and its regulators. We ask, “could that happen here?”
WHAT: Through March 28, 2015, the Steynberg Gallery (1531 Monterey St, San Luis Obispo) is featuring REDACTED–an exhibition exploring the lack of transparency inherent in nuclear energy, but specific to California. It features large scale works created from “redacted” (and some formerly secret) documents collated by David Weisman of the Alliance for Nuclear Responsibility. The witty political cartoons of Russell Hodin–lampooning the nuclear follies–provide an effective and incisive contrast to the Weisman’s opaque assemblages. There will be a video installation as well.
WHERE: Steynberg Gallery, 1531 Monterey St, San Luis Obispo, CA
This is a must see exhibit and will run from March 3 through March 28, 2015. Normal gallery hours, 7:30 AM to 5:30 PM, every day.
