The Projective Eye Gallery at UNC Charlotte Center City opened in September 2011. Curated by Director of Galleries Crista Cammaroto, the gallery presents major exhibitions and installations by national and international artists and distinguishes itself by presenting inter-disciplinary "happenings" in conjunction with exhibitions throughout the year.
March 9-May 30
Opening reception March 22, 6-8 pm
Favelas: Architecture of Survival includes 48 large format photographs by Brazilian photographer Pedro Lobo, documenting the favelas or shanty towns in Rio de Janeiro, the longest-lived squatter settlements in the world. In conjunction with the exhibition, the gallery will host response work from our neighbors at Urban Ministry and students in the UNC Charlotte School of Architecture and its Master of Urban Design program in the Center City building’s front window.
The opening reception on March 22 features a lecture by Pedro Lobo followed by “Negotiating the Gap,” a panel discussion addressing transitional housing, and Brazilian music and dance by Cordoa de Ouro Charlotte – Mestre Esquilo. FREE
Favelas: Architecture of Survival was organized by the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art of the School of the Arts at the College of Charleston, SC, and curated by Mark Long, Professor of Political Science at the College of Charleston.
