"Features recent and historic work by a range of pioneering and visionary artists. Questioning traditional views and challenging our environmental consciousness, this in-depth publication and accompanying exhibition attempt to foster a reconsideration of climate change, envisioning the present crises and future consequences of humanity's harsh imprint on our planet." -- From the publisher.
"intercalations 2 - LAND & ANIMAL & NONANIMAL - ... is an ensemble which contends that the meaning of the Anthropocene is less a geological re-formation than it is trans-formation of both land and animal; once exposed to some of the parameters defining this transition, the reader-as-exhibition-viewer may begin to discern erratic rhythms generated by the creatures of nonconformity that inhabit, with their violence, struggles, and love the vast, machinic reality called Earth. Land & Animal & Nonanimal turns the attention from the built space of cultural repositories to the postnatural landscapes of planet Earth." -- From the publisher.
"The World to Come is organized around overlapping trajectories, constituting a network of ecologies and stories within stories. The narrative traces states of being and becoming, from rupture, disaster and loss to the emergence of nonhierarchical alliances in human-non-human relations. It also explores the realms of justice, aesthetics, ethics, and the role of technology while considering the possibilities for a vibrant future. The stories in this essay are structured by seven intersecting themes of the exhibition: Raw Material, Consumption, Deluge, Extinction, Synthesis, Justice, and Imaginary Futures." -- From the publisher.
"Lavishly illustrated with informational graphics, paintings, sculptures, drawings and photography, this 212-page book accompanies the Gyre exhibition. Twelve essays by scientists, artists, writers and others explore the ways in which we are all connected -- both by trash and by the sea, and through our individual actions. Gyre: The Plastic Ocean looks at human consumption, modern materials and environmental change and their impacts upon one of the largest, most mysterious and critical components of our planet: the ocean. This book includes the history of plastic, startling facts, trash breakdown rates and things you can do to support trash-free seas." -- Anchorage Museum website.
