This exhibition, NatureCulture, organized by the Center for Contemporary Arts & Culture at PNCA and in collaboration with PNCA’s Art + Science Initiative and the Art + Ecology minor, is a great moment to reflect on the incredible work PNCA students have been doing in response to social and ecological issues.

Students working at the intersection of art and ecology are responding to some of our most urgent conversations—addressing relationships with each other and the anthropogenic impacts that are defining our lived environment. Their work reflects the hope, ideas, challenges, dread, and humor that a generation facing a future of climatic variability and ecological catastrophe must contend with. Through their exploration of diverse vocabularies, students frame new and critical ways if engaging and conceptualizing these topics and while reimagine the world.

At PNCA students have multiple venues and opportunities to explore social and ecological themes in their work including through the interdisciplinary Art and Ecology minor, the programming of PNCA’s Art + Science Initiative and the Center for Contemporary Art and Culture, that dependably throws open its doors to the greater public to foster conversation and community.

The Art and Ecology minor supports students in developing a broad understanding of pressing ecological issues and their relationship to the social, political, cultural, and economic systems that impact the future of humanity, other species, and our shared planet. Student’s work across disciplines to make work that is socially and ecologically impactful.
