Join Blackfish Gallery for an artist talk with Lauren Carrera. Carrera's solo exhibition, “Museo du Profundo Mundo presents: THE ASCENT OF MAN” transforms Blackfish gallery space into an immersive environment, evoking the reverence and wonder of the natural-history museum-going experience.
Through use of large and small-scale dioramas, “specimens,” and the scientific presentation of objects, and paintings the exhibit examines our individual and collective past, present, and future, and our relationship with the natural world, transforming prosaic materials--such as bubble wrap, cigarette butts, junk mail, discarded books--into high art.
Carrera is a Portland-based artist whose science and art-based installations have shown at the San Diego Museum of Art, the Oceanside Museum of Art, Grossmont College, and the Museum of Monterey.
