LECTURE: Representing Nature and the Nature of Representation
August 4, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm$5.00 – $7.00
Join Prosek for an overview of his art within the context of his lifelong inquiry about how and why we name and order nature. From his perspective as a contemporary artist-naturalist who innovates upon traditional methods, hear about Prosek’s interest in the origins of drawing, and his theories about the reasons why humans have felt compelled to represent things in nature. A gallery walk to see his work in Fragile Earth will conclude the event.
Featuring James Prosek, Artist, featured in Fragile Earth.
