"The Ties That Bind: The Paradox of Cultural Survival amid Climate Events," an exhibition of sculpture by Anina Major and photography by Tamika Galanis, will be on display at the Lyndon House Art Center from Sept. 17 through Nov. 30. The exhibit is a partnership between the Lyndon House and the Willson Center for Humanities and Arts.

This exhibition originated on St. Helena Island, SC during an artist residency in which the artists examined cultural identity and sustainability through environmental relationships. Galanis and Major are both from The Bahamas and now based in Atlanta and New York City respectively. Both multimedia artists’ work interrogates popular conceptions of place: Major’s through investigating “the relationship between self and place as a site of negotiation,” and Galanis’s by examining “the complexities of living in a place shrouded in tourism’s ideal during the age of climate concerns."

The artists’ work inspired by this residency explores notions of life in the Sea Islands of South Carolina and The Bahama Islands.

Accompanying programs for "The Ties That Bind" will be in conjunction with UGA’s Spotlight on the Arts festival in November 2022.
