Listen to the entire conversation here:

“Between Bodies” is a group exhibition that includes sculpture, augmented reality, video, and sound-based works that delve into intimate exchanges and entwined relations between human and more-than-human bodies within contexts of ongoing ecological change. Ranging from speculative fiction to place-based narrative, these artworks blur the false divide between nature and culture, and question what it means to be human in a time of global climate change and environmental transformation.

Participating artists include Caitlin Berrigan, Ursula Biemann, micha cárdenas and Abraham Avnisan, Carolina Caycedo, Candice Lin and Patrick Staff, and Susanne M. Winterling.

“Between Bodies” is organized by Nina Bozicnik, Associate Curator. This exhibition is supported in part by an award from the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia. Additional support is provided by the Goethe-Institut Pop Up Seattle.
