About the exhibition
The evolution of species and spaces in 21st– century art explores the environmental, economic, and technological conditions shaping the earth and its inhabitants today. In these still and moving images of land and cityscapes, and in the taxidermy and fabricated figures emerging within, nature meets technoculture, and the sublime becomes the supernatural.
