FACULTY TRIENNIAL EXHIBITION
January 26 – March 16, 2019
Presented as part of The Galleries' ongoing commitment to showcase the diversity of work produced by the Moore community, this triennial gives a glimpse into the issues our talented faculty are currently exploring in their professions and reinforces Moore’s ongoing commitment to showcasing the diversity of work produced by its community. This exhibition features new and recent work by forty-nine faculty members across all disciplines and, for the first time, occupies every gallery on the campus ground floor. In addition, an accompanying schedule of ongoing and one-time public programs conceived by teaching faculty provides insight into the work of both the makers and the non- makers who prepare Moore’s students for careers in art & design.

RIVER OF INFERNO BY YIU-NGOK YUEN
In conjunction with the 2019 Faculty Triennial professor Jonathan Wallis presents the special curatorial project River of Inferno — a selection of paintings by the Chinese-American artist, Yiu-Ngok Yuen, produced during his final years in self-exile from his native China. Aptly titled by the artist, the series takes viewers on a critical journey through the fallout from China’s twentieth century political and cultural transformations. Guided by Yuen’s artistic imagery, we ride the tumultuous waves like Dante who, in his Divine Comedy, is led by the poet Virgil over the River Styx. Tragically, the immoral circles of Dante’s Inferno echo all too clearly in the subjects and layers of history embedded in Yuen’s neo-expressionist paintings.
