Jennifer Lord's Every Extinct BirdBigger view(s): Earth, Anthropocene, Beauty

March 27 – May 24
Main – Arapahoe Ramp

Featuring the artists David D’Agostino, Jennifer Lord, and Noah Travis Phillips, Bigger View(s): Earth, Anthropocene, Beauty offers parallel simultaneous realities of the multi-centered networks of Nature. Questioning dualistic understandings both formally and thematically, the art is not human-centric, rather it opens feeling-ways into new modes of being with(in). The artwork conjures feelings of harmony, beauty, sublimity, grief and interconnection. We posit this as a way forward through the Anthropocene.
