AnthropoScene

Exhibition: January 27 – February 17, 2018

Opening Reception: January 27, 7 pm – 9 pm
Closing Reception: Saturday, February 17, 12 pm – 3 pm
Artist Talk: Saturday, February 17, 2 pm


If the industrial-sized mistakes of our Anthropocene period, i.e., the geologic era marked by human activity, seem to augur eco-catastophe, the humanized landscape still affords us visions of beauty and even transcendence (and sometimes humor). The photographers of AnthropoScene peruse the contemporary world, finding meaning and even moments of grace within the dynamic human landscape of global capitalism. ​
