Assistant Professor Dushko Petrovich (New Arts Journalism) was named to the FRONT Triennial's curatorial team, reports Artforum. The 2021 edition of the triennial will take place across three cities in northeast Ohio from July 17 through October 2, 2021. Titled “Oh, Gods of Dust and Rainbows,” after a 1957 poem by Langston Hughes, who moved to Cleveland in his childhood, the triennial will focus on labor, the environment, and the “exploitation, alienation, and degradation caused by capital.” In addition, the triennial will also take a look at how art can be an “agent of transformation, a mode of healing, and a therapeutic process.”
