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