Opening Reception + Artist Talk | Jon Tonks | The Men Who Would Be King

Join us for Gallery Walk on Friday September 2nd, featuring an Artist Talk with photographer Jon Tonks at 7 pm.

The Men Who Would be King follows several American and European men who traveled to the nation of Vanuatu, claiming to be the fulfillment of a prophecy to become a powerful leader on the island of Tanna. In this exhibition, photographer Jon Tonks and writer Christopher Lord examine the varied response to the foreign men who reach for imaginary power, as they sift through the repercussions of colonialism and its ongoing ramifications on the islands.
