Between Life and Land: Material
Introducing Between Life and Land a three-part exhibition series taking place over the course of the coming calendar year and examining our relationship to land through the lens of more than 30 artists. Each exhibition in the series explores a singular theme to bring a deeper understanding of how this relationship has formed, evolved, and today continues to change.
On display December 9, 2022 – April 9, 2023, Between Life and Land: Material introduces artists who create work from a direct engagement with earthen forms and materials. From the ephemerality of Sara Lynne Lindsay’s Decomposing Quilt, to the intricate detail displayed in David Brooks’ cast aluminum forests, this work shows the undeniable beauty in landscapes both near and far while also exploring our connections to place, time, and the larger cosmos.
