The Future is Present: Art and Global Change
Laumeier Sculpture Park’s newest exhibition titled will examine the intersections between art and some of the world’s most pressing issues: climate change, environmental crisis and the related global repercussions. The Future is Present explores the innovation of artists and their commitment to understanding humankind’s material impact on nature and technology’s role in understanding this global emergency..
Continuing Laumeier’s initiative focusing on Art and Global Change, which began in 2020, The Future is Present will emphasize the urgency of topics ranging from deforestation and astronomical phenomena to tech waste. The artists assembled bring perspectives from across the planet, and they will use video, sound, virtual/augmented reality and upcycled materials to address this theme. Exhibiting artists are: Daniel Canogar (Los Angeles/Madrid), Hannah Chalew (New Orleans), Jake Chapman (London), Pete Froslie (Norman, OK), Jenny Kendler (Chicago), Van McElwee (St. Louis), Elias Sime (Addis Ababa), Calum Stirling (Glasgow) and Marina Zurkow (New York).
