Curated by Cornelia Jensen
May 20 – June 11, 2017
Opening Reception: Saturday, May 20th, 4–6pm
The WAH Center (Williamsburg Art and Historical Center) presents LIFE ON EARTH– a group art exhibition exploring the many artistic explorations of nature and our environment. We hope to explore in this exhibition how “design” from human craft interacts with what is “natural,” and the role that humans play in response to nature. Humanity’s relationship with nature is further complicated by the rise of modern technology and metropolises, illuminating both nature’s adaptability and its vulnerability. Through their work, these artists seek to capture and question the varying connections between humans and nature.
