“Perspectives: Micro to Macro” explores the relationship between humans and nature through a range of aesthetic perspectives. The artists either focus on the microscopic, to investigate the natural creatures that have long been neglected by humans, or shift to the macroscopic, examining the impact of human social and production activities both on ourselves and the environment. The exhibit is a joint effort by artists and audiences to reconstruct the way we live with nature through self-observation and reflection.
The exhibition was curated by 15 Emerson undergraduate students as part of a Visual Media Arts course, “Curating Contemporary Art,” taught by Dr. Leonie Bradbury, Distinguished Curator-in-Residence. Students are responsible for all aspects of the exhibition, including exhibition design, a website, loan agreements, the object checklist, educational materials, social media assets, and press materials.
