Arlington Arts Center presents King of the Forest: Adventures in Bioperversity

Contemporary artists explore humanity's changing relationship with other species

Exhibiting artists include: Selin Balci, Krista Caballero & Frank Ekeberg, Anthony Cervino, Rebecca Clark, Lisa Crafts, Joan Danziger, Talia Greene, Jonathan Monaghan, David D'Orio and Henrik Sundqvist, Lindsay Pichaske, Leslie Shellow

On View: January 23 - April 3, 2016 | Opening Reception: January 23, 6-9 pm

Leslie Shellow's site-specific installation, Entanglements explores the forces at work in the natural world.  Despite humanity's efforts to control and dominate nature, Shellow suggests that nature will continue to play out unexpectedly.  She implies that if humans were only to stop and appreciate the ever-moving life-cycle of nature, the connection to it would increase and anxiety over the need for control could dissipate.
