September 21 – December 21, 2018

NEST’s inaugural exhibition, EMBYRONIC, presents preexisting, far-flung work, while also bringing local collaborators together anew: a chemist and a ceramicist; a wood sculptor and an ecologist; or a hydrologist and a filmmaker.

“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious; it is the source of all art and science.”

The work in the exhibition can be viewed empirically, contemplatively, immanently, or with a sense of urgency for a world beset with endocrine disruptors, rising sea levels and rampant resource competition. Above all, the work here is germinal, full of potential, testing our thresholds for declaring fertile conclusions, intermediaries, and of course: inventive beginnings.
