Pratt Manhattan Gallery
Opening reception: Thursday, December 6 from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m.
This exhibition assembles over forty contemporary architects, artists, and landscape architects whose work challenges the division between the built and the natural environment. In the Anthropocene epoch, humans have been fundamentally displaced from a place of privilege, philosophically as well as experientially. Western civilization’s traditional distinctions between nature and culture have eroded. Ambiguous Territory asks, can art and design avail new ways to approach contemporary challenges regarding the environment? What new worlds, and what new concepts of nature and culture can art and design reveal that other modes of inquiry and knowledge cannot?
