with Tohono Chul Director of Arts and Engagement, James Schaub.
Join us in the Exhibit House for a discussion about our new exhibition, THE EXOTIC SUBLIME | on a wing in the Main Gallery.
THE EXOTIC SUBLIME | on a wing presents a contemporary bestiary focused on the many creatures that take to the air in the Sonoran Desert. In plain sight or elusive, real and imagined creatures are ever-present, existing, threatened, mysterious, endangered, mystical, and magical. Or extinct. Mammalian, insect, and avian worlds fly, float, soar, hover, flap, and flutter around us; resilient lifecycles adaptably ever-changing. Or not. We witness – in macrocosm or microcosm – the effects of time in slow dissolution or methodical accretion; cautionary and symbiotic tales combine what this place used to be with what this place will become. The voice in between, the creative and artistic resolve, is a visionary current toward the odd and wondrous grandeur of The Exotic Sublime.
