The Utopian Megapraxis collective presents (UU)ater :: Exhibition at Brenda Tuxford Gallery,
422 1st St, Eureka, CA 95501. The exhibition opens during Eureka Arts Alive on February 3rd
and closes February 23th. This event marks the release of the (UU)ater zine, part of a series of
publications produced by the Utopian Megapraxis arts collective.
(UU)ater is an exhibition showcasing artworks that explore the theme of water as an aspect of
Utopian Universals, which are concepts and elements that any practicing Utopia would need to
examine and make fundamental to its functioning and development. The exhibition marks the
release of the (UU)ater zine, part of the Utopian Universal zine series created by the Utopian
Megapraxis collective. Featured artists include Belinda Haikes, Mona Gazala, Leah Sandler,
Adam Farcus, Ella Medicus, George Lorio, Josh Duttweiler, Marina Sachs (SHADE), Stephen
Nachtigall, Irene Pe, Jacob Riddle, Ella Medicus, and more. The exhibition includes an exploded
view of the publication, photographs, drawings, video works, digital access to the .PDF as well
as free takeaway copies of the publication.
Bridging the space between printed ephemera and temporal installation, (UU)ater places work
in relation to the body. Just as one enjoys the coast or stays hydrated, the exchange between
human bodies and bodies of water is forever ongoing. The show is specifically laid out to
question and observe what we need from water, and what water needs from us, highlighting
both the urgent and slippery nature of this resource in Utopia.
