Allan Sekula and Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle are both featured in the exhibition Waterworld at the Glass Curtain Gallery at Columbia College Chicago. This group exhibition united by the theme of water also features artists such as Leslie Baum, Drexciya, Julie Marie Lemon, Mohau Modisakeng and David Nasca.

 

Sekula's Shipwreck, Istanbul from the series Shipwrecks and Workers is featured in the exhibition. This triptych documents the capsizing of a boat in the Sea of Marmara in Istanbul after Christmas of 1999.

 

Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle presents selections from his Well project, including a well prototype and several gallons of water pumped from the artist's well in Wisconsin. Through this series, Manglano-Ovalle explores the legalities and cultural complexities associated with water rights.
