strange landscapes

On View: June 25- October 2, 2016

Strange Landscapes approaches landscape as a topic, a historical legacy, a lens for exploring our relationship with nature, and a foundation for imagining alternative ways of being. Featuring painting,drawing, installation, video, sculpture, and performance, the exhibition highlights artists whose work both draws on and challenges traditional artistic approaches to the natural and built environments. The exhibition will include artist talks, interactive community workshops, and a catalog, along with curriculum for both students and adults.

Artists: Matthew Colaizzo | Edgar Endress | Ryan Hoover | Ariel Jackson | Katarina Jerinic | Matthew Mann | Jaimes Mayhew | Alejandro Pintado | Jacob Rivkin | Margarita Sánchez Urdaneta | Kate Stewart

Strange Landscapes is co-curated by Blair Murphy and Karyn Miller
