RIO GALLERY UP: Raw and Uncooked. This exhibition explores the relationship between culture and nature, one of the oldest human tropes. Artists Jim Jacobs (see our profile in the February 2016 edition), Joshua Winegar, and Paul Crow present work within this nature/culture dialectic. Jacobs begins with an ancient horticultural intervention, the graft, to focus our attention on a literal intersection of the natural and the human-made. Winegar takes on the natural world as a partner in a conversation with his psyche, alternately responding to, and intervening in, the world which surrounds him. Crow maps the span of his life onto the time frame of the human awareness of global climate change. UPCOMING: A Place to Call Place: The first five years of the Frontier Fellowship.
