Uncanny Times: Looking Back, Looking Forward is an exhibition to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Artnauts, an art collective founded at CU Boulder in 1996. The Artnauts’ mission is to exhibit works in countries that have been or continue to be places of contention - sites of war, ethnic, social, and political injustices.
THE ARTNAUTS COLLECTIVE is an artist collective that uses the visual arts as a tool for addressing global issues while connecting with artists from around the world. In 1996, Dr. George Rivera, professor in the Art and Art History Department at the University of Colorado Boulder, founded the Artnauts with Dennis Dalton, (University of Colorado Pueblo), Dr. Beth Krensky, (University of Utah), Garrison Roots, and Luis Valdovino, (University of Colorado Boulder). Dr. Rivera has been the lead curator since the inception of the collective.
