Stop by Schneider Hall, Belknap Gallery before February 24th to see Unseen: Visualizing Ecological Systems
(Jan. 12th – Feb. 24th, 9am-4:30pm weekdays / 1-5pm weekends)
UofL’s Hite Art Institute presents an exhibition curated by critical and curatorial studies master’s candidate Madison Sevilla. “Unseen” features sculptures and drawings by Stephen Cartwright and Shohei Katayama that explore the intersections between art and ecology. Cartwright’s data visualization sculptures function as self-portraits created through detailed documentation of his life and routines. Katayama’s work is ecologically aware, and he utilizes his drawings and sculptures as a catalyst for environmental conversations. His work examines the underlying patterns and forces of nature by showcasing unseen relationships in ecology. The exhibit provides viewers with the groundwork to contemplate the impact on and interactions between the various systems that surround us. Cartwright and Katayama offer up visualizations of the infinite and continuous ecologies that constitute our routines.
