Gallery Talk: Mark Dion: Engaging the Culture of Nature

Contemporary artist Mark Dion has pioneered an interdisciplinary approach to conceptual art that combines installation, appropriation, and performance art with scientific methodologies to offer commentary on humans’ treatment of the environment. Join Parsons for a discussion of his practice and an insider’s look into the collaboration between the Artist and the Museum to create his new cabinet of curiosities, which was assembled with locally-collected trash and historic archeological remnants of the Lyme Art Colony. Featuring Jenny Parsons, Assistant Curator.

Free with Museum admission.

Note: Featured artist will not be present at this event.
