McEvoy Foundation for the Arts is pleased to announce ‘MYR,’ an immersive multimedia exhibit featuring works by artists who deeply engage with science and human existence. Taking its title from a unit of measurement equaling one million years, the exhibit reveals how deeper visions of space and time can emerge from contemporary anxieties such as climate change. The artworks on view tackle ideas as varied as the color of the universe since the Big Bang and the growth of plant life beyond Earth.
Speculative landscapes by Alexandra Daisy Ginsberg and Candice Lin depict scenes of abundant flora and fauna that might thrive in the absence of humanity. Katie Paterson considers how the abstract essence of deep time can be envisioned through text, scent, and kinetic sculpture. And six short films running concurrently in the Screening Room explore related subjects including interspecies affinities, human histories of exploitation, and Indigenous futures.
‘MYR’ is on view from May 27 through August 27, 2022. McEvoy Arts is open Wednesday-Saturday, 11am-6pm, and admission is free. Visit www.mcevoyarts.org or call 415-580-7605 to learn more and plan your visit.
