Runs November 9 through December 23, 2017
Nature as Prototype aims to examine the role of nature and biology as a source of inspiration for art and design. The artists included in this exhibition—Adam Nelson, Yoko K., and Grethe Wittrock—will collaborate to create an immersive environment that explores the changing nature of our relationship to the natural world. Additionally, Sarah Beth Oppenheim will choreograph a site-specific dance that she will perform in the space toward the closing date of the exhibition. Continuing the conversation about how we choose to co-exist in what is described today as the Anthropocene, the exhibition will examine how art and design are fundamentally linked to scientific, biological, mathematical, philosophical, and social investigations.
