Exhibition: Biological Regionalism: Alberto Rey

12:00 a.m. 12:00 a.m. End Time
All day | Burchfield Penney Art Center at Buffalo State

Alberto Rey looks at what the important ways we can consider our relationship to our region. Using the Scajacuada Creek from its beginning in Lancaster to the terminus at the Niagara River, he charts an important waterway with idyllic landscape paintings, video and sculptures. Originally, the creek was an open sewage system for Buffalo and has been covered with roadways, re-routed and generally abused. Its history and  present condition reflect our relationship to the environment. At different points it is celebrated, like in Forest Lawn Cemetery, and other areas disregarded. Alberto’s investigation is a starting point for a discussion for how we use and change our environment, mostly in negative ways.
