Slater Concourse Gallery
nARTure. Reshaping eco-art
Curated by Silvia Bottinelli
Co-sponsored by Environmental Studies, Tufts Art Gallery, Tufts Institute
of the Environment (TIE), and Visual and Critical Studies
nARTure investigates the intersection of art and nature through the work of Tufts
students. These works address both societal and subjective interactions with the
environment such as "Why is 'nature' defined as separate from 'human'? and
"How does our understanding of 'nature' change with time?"
(Curatorial Practice: SMFA Students at Work)
A two-part exhibition between SMFA's Mission Hill Gallery and Tufts University's
Slater Concourse, Exchange examines the politics of trade, currency, value,
substitution connection and colonization as they unfurl through our bodies research
independently and collectively.
The question of exchange surfaces through these works, tangibly, invisibly, and intimately,
fusing subtle but intense experiences of both relation and tension through matter,
space, memory, history, identity, information, and the unknown.
With performances, video, installation, sculpture, drawings and paintings presented
between both galleries and a special exhibition of takeaways presented at the
Slater Concourse, the class of 2019 is proud to present to you, Exchange.
The Opening Reception of Exchange at MH Gallery will be held on Friday, March 9, 2018 from 5:30-7:30pm.
