Anthropocenic: Art About the Natural World in the Human Era is a topical and compelling group exhibition by artists who make art about nature, the natural world, and our effect on and interrelation with it in the 21st century. The artists explore the relationship of humans to the world with widely varied conceptual strategies, artistic practices, and media. Some address the human impact on the natural world directly, while for others the relationship to the Anthropocene is more oblique. The exhibiting artists work in most media from painting and sculpture to video and infographics. Some of the strategies they employ include incorporating the sciences and other disciplines into their work; working with teams of artists, scientists, students, and others; and creating project-based works exploring the theme.
The Exhibition will run from October 27, 2018 – March 23, 2019
