Most of the game hunting in New York State officially opens on October 1st. Hunting season conjures visuals of rustic lodges, camouflage getups, hanging carcasses, and mounted trophies. But â€œthe huntâ€� with its intrinsic pursuit of bounty, influences human experiences far beyond the landscape of the fields and streams. Current global conditions like the Arab Spring uprisings, lengthy unemployment lines, indicted financiers, super-sized athletes, and dreams of homeownership, private islands, and singing idols are all evidence of the human necessity for unrelenting pursuit. The curators seek work that addresses the varied incarnations of hunting and gathering.
