Curated by Dr. Jeffrey Hughes, the exhibition Dispositive Environments will highlight the tension between technology and permanence, as well as the too often neglected ecological consequences of technology’s rapid expansion.
The juxtaposition of still necessary mechanisms and technologies of the Industrial Revolution associated with, for example, sub-surface mining or railroad transport, are intertwined with the technological engines of transnational commerce and information economies. Art that responds to this intersection of social, symbolic and political forces will be shown with research-based documentation.
