Radical Landscapes

Gatehouse Gallery

Amy Balkin et al., Amanda Eicher, Pablo Guardiola, Cybele Lyle, Robert Minervini, Trevor Paglen, Elizabeth Sims

The natural environment serves as medium and muse for the seven artists in Radical Landscapes who reflect on a range of larger concerns including climate change, surveillance, and identity. Taking romantic notions of landscape and the sublime as points of departure, this exhibition presents contemporary approaches to nature that reflect our rapidly evolving world. As boundaries between disciplines in visual culture become blurred, art that engages with the natural environment frequently connects to scientific, historical, and philosophical ideas. Through a range of media, the artists in this exhibition upend familiar, anodyne approaches to landscape and instead present work that critically examines our relationship to the natural world.
