THE NATURAL OTHER
Curated by Ruth Tabancay
In honor of Earth Day, April 22, Mercury 20 Gallery member Ruth Tabancay curated a show of artwork that fits into the premise, The Natural Other. The work in this show falls along a continuum with “What would happen without human intervention?” at one end and “With human intervention, what is the extent of disruption to a particular earth system and can we fix it?” at the other. Whether impacted or not, to what end will natural history evolve? The selected artists depict an intimate relationship with the earth through a variety of concepts.
