Changing Circumstances


Changing Circumstances

“These are artists who have engaged the natural world and humanity’s place in that world, over many years,” says 2016 Biennial co-curator Wendy Watriss. “Many of the artworks manifest the artists’ rigorous investigations into science and philosophy.” Featured projects address the anthropocene – climate change; industrialization and urbanization; bio-diversity; water; the use of natural and human resources; human migration; global capital, commerce and consumption; energy production; and waste.

The CHANGING CIRCUMSTANCES  exhibition is on view at SILVER STREET STUDIOS, THE SILOS AT SAWYER YARDS, SPRING STREET STUDIOS, and WILLIAMS TOWER GALLERY.
