SupraEnvironmental

 

SupraEnvironmental, Installation view by Margaret Fox.

SupraEnvironmental brings together the work of contemporary artists who transform natural and man-made materials to provide new pivots and vantage points onto our contemporary environment.Throughout the exhibition there is an abiding sense of how contemporary artists create enlightening and unexpected encounters with the objects and things that shape our day-to-day situations. Their work prompts deep experiences of the actual and imaginative relationships that we have with our environment and also our positions within it.

Curated by Charlotte Cotton, with assistance from Shilpi Chandra and Elizabeth Rooklidge.



SupraEnvironmental is made possible through support by Victoria and Stephen Morris.
