Following Available Light and Space

FOLLOWING AVAILABLE LIGHT AND SPACE

Curated by Paper Buck, this exhibit features four artists who address the cultural myths and ecological legacies embedded in relationships to American forests. Through land management practices that are inseparable from broader histories of power, we have socially constructed an unstable ecological surround.

Following Available Light and Space takes its title from ecological descriptions of forest succession-- the process through which new growth spreads into and transforms existing landscapes after natural disasters or climatic changes. In a forest, light and space are the basic building blocks of ecological futurity.  Together, they are magnets for life, and gatekeepers of potentiality.
