Experience the exhibition Terra Anima through the eyes of Curator Joey Orr and learn about the Museum’s Integrated Arts Research Initiative. This exhibition underscores the idea that soil is not inert, but rather, as artist Claire Pentecost has stated: “Soil is a persistent community structure.” Her soil chromatography prints are on display along with works by other artists, including Ana Mendieta, Andrew Ross, and Alan Sonfist, in addition to scientific pedagogical tools. Terra Anima highlights both artists and scientists as makers of objects of cultural contemplation.
