online exhibition + printed book

For this exhibition, we will illuminate the transformations that have led us to the current human epoch, now referred to as the Anthropocene. 

The New Geologic Epoch will present works relating to or commenting on geological transformations in the land including commentary on previous works by Earth or Land artists. The works reference our evolution leading to the precarious situation we find ourselves in today with massive scarring of the planet's surfaces due to mining and the impacts of the built environment with the development of dams, bridges, roads, and sprawling urban cities. Works include a wide range of media with drawings, watercolors, collage, textile, sculpture, ceramic, painting, photography, sound, video, film, installation, performative, and eco-remediation. 

The New Geologic Epoch, juried by Mary Mattingly, presents works that capture the shifting baselines, which over time have become the new normal.

Jurors statement coming soon!
