January 31–March 31, 1996
Gregory Crewdson, Ronald Jones, David Nyzio, Vincent Shine, and Laura Stein.
Perfect World is an exhibition of work by artists who address the idea of nature. Decidedly dystopian, the exhibition portrays a wilderness withered and misshapen by the will of man. The work attempts to direct the viewer’s consideration away from questions of preserving a Romantic mythic nature and toward a consideration of the consequences of Modernist cultural concepts and attitudes toward nature.
Artists: Gregory Crewdson, Ronald Jones, David Nyzio, Vincent Shine, and Laura Stein.
