Natural Wonders in Conversation
In the New Nature series which features uninterrupted 24-hour long videos taken in wilderness preserves, Tribe hopes audiences-who may soon be robbed of these particular landscapes by events like climate change-will “come to realize that even the wildest places are being transformed by human impact.” Mark Tribes Balsam Lake Mountain Wild Forest video from the New Nature series can be seen as part of Natural Wonders: The Sublime in Contemporary Art.
Tribe’s inspiration and sources include Hudson River School landscape painting, gaming, and drone photography. He has an interest in land conservation and recently made several visits to Brandywine Conservancy’s Laurels Preserve in Chester County. Tribe is the chair of the MFA Fine Arts Department at the School of Visual Arts in New York City.
The Museum will open at 5:30 p.m. with the program at 6 p.m. and a reception to follow.
