DESCRIPTION
Shifting Ecologies, running from June 17 through July 12, 2014. Highly publicized with a catalog, the exhibition will feature a diverse group of artists who are exploring ecological issues and changes to the environment.
 
One of the consequences of living can be the alteration — sometimes subtle, sometimes overt — of our environment. Industrial and technological expansion are triggering drastic environmental changes resulting in mutations, diseases and pollutants. These ecological transformations impact everything, from the lives of tiny bacteria to the biological processes spanning the entire globe. The overall destruction from global warming, ozone depletion, acid rain, genetic engineering and toxic waste threatens our survival and way of life. The earth struggles to adapt to the imposed conditions and faces a succession of challenges without any certainty that it may sustain itself.
