Third Annual Exhibition Holding What Can’t Be Held at MING Studios

Opening Event: August 9th, 7pm at MING studios

Exhibition Runs: August 9th – September 29th

In 2017, with the help of nuclear watchdog group the Snake River Alliance, ten local and international artists toured the radioactive ‘clean-up’ sites at the Idaho National Laboratory (INL). They watched the exhumation of plutonium contaminated waste that was buried sixty years ago in unlined pits directly above the Snake River Aquifer, the sole source of drinking water for 300,000 Idahoans.

Now, after one year of processing, the artists are presenting their work: a continuing chronicle of the nuclear age and its impossible conundrums, such as how to deal with substances whose radioactivity will outlast any container that we could make to hold it.

This year’s artists are: Kate Walker, Shawn Edrington, Kirsten Furlong, Marc Herbst, Caroline Earley, William Lewis, Rachel Reichert, Karl LeClair, Amy O’Brien and Tim Andreae.
