DESCRIPTION

What can bees teach us about modernist aesthetics? How is a beauty regime invested in environmental conservation? How are we ingesting, destroying, and/or merging with plant-life, mud, soil, crystals, algae, and flowers in our built environments?

Seedlings brings together nine emerging artists to the newly-renovated cavernous space of the Dallas Contemporary. Each artist investigates ways nature or natural systems have informed human industry and the evidence of a hybrid process of productivity. Through a reconsideration of methodologies of artmaking, the works focus on the possibility of collaborations with nature, degrees of interconnectivity, mimesis and its discontents, and entropy as an ecstatic state.
