DESCRIPTION

This exhibition engages the dichotomy of the natural and the artificial—where the two diverge, where they overlap, and how one is manifest in the other. The artists included investigate not only their relationships to the natural and artificial world, but also the impact of such a distinction. Through a diverse and ambitious approach to material and installation, the exhibition brings together current SAIC students and recent alumni to explore the artificially natural, the naturally artificial, and everything in-between. Curated by Rachel M. Wolff (MA 2012), curatorial assistant, Department of Exhibitions. Artists include: Marissa Benedict and Luis Palacios (GRAFT), Samantha Bittman, Joseph G. Cruz, David R. Harper, Tara Hills, Saiko Kase, Min Jung Kim, Libby O'Bryan, Allison Wade, and Katie Waugh.
