The precarious relationship between nature and humanity is the subject of this exhibition, drawn primarily from the permanent collection of the San José Museum of Art. The exhibition presents paintings, sculpture, photography, mixed-media works, video, and installation by artists who raise questions about our rampant impact on Earth’s fragile ecosystems. They demonstrate that close observation of the rhythms and cycles that govern the planet can transform our understanding of nature and make our sense of wonder so indestructible that it inspires and admonishes us to impart this awareness to the generations to come.
Artists featured in the exhibition include Lisa Adams, Anne Appleby, Chester Arnold, Ruth Asawa, Sandow Birk, Val Britton, Edward Burtynsky, Evan Holm, Chris Jordan, Amy Kaufman, Michael Light, Mayme Kratz, Danae Mattes, Richard Misrach, Judy Pfaff, Nathan Redwood, Sam Richardson, Diana Thater, Alyson Shotz, Kathryn Spence, Kirsten Stolle, and Gail Wight.
