Perfect World is an exhibition of work by artists who address the idea of nature. Decidedly dystopian, the exhibition portrays a wilderness withered and misshapen by the will of man. The work attempts to direct the viewer’s consideration away from questions of preserving a Romantic mythic nature and toward a consideration of the consequences of Modernist cultural concepts and attitudes toward nature.
Artists: Gregory Crewdson, Ronald Jones, David Nyzio, Vincent Shine, and Laura Stein.
Curated by Karen Emenhiser.
