Above the clouds, Aryen Hoekstra: Jan 21 – Feb 27, 2016
Opening reception: January 21, 7-9pm
Join Creative Practices Institute and Aryen Hoekstra for the opening reception of exhibition, Above the Clouds!
Above the clouds considers our planet’s looming ecological crisis, which these modern ideological projections set in place and have since shown themselves incapable of confronting. Taking formal cues from the post-war ‘Space Race’, the exhibition culls references from the Seattle World’s Fair of 1962, dubbed the 21st Century Exposition, and the high-altitude nuclear tests of the same year, code named Operation Fishbowl. The works included, when considered in relation to one another, speculate on what future conditions might be produced when Earth is considered not in correlation to human beings, but as an object in excess of humankind.
During the opening reception, taking place January 21 from 7-9pm, Aryen will be present to share his latest exhibition, answer questions, and engage with other arts and cultural enthusiasts! Join us for this free evening event, where there will also be drinks and refreshments available for purchase.
