Enduring Amazon: Life and Afterlife in the Rainforest
A Rich Examination of the Amazon Rainforest and Its Delicate Interconnection With Our Lives
Enduring Amazon: Life and Afterlife in the Rainforest presents an emotionally-charged immersion in light, sound, and imagery that explores the delicate balance of life in the Amazon rainforest.
Anchored by a groundbreaking ultra-high-definition film from environmental photographer Richard Mosse, the group exhibition will also feature a multi-gallery soundtrack by award-winning composer Ben Frost, a new video and sound installation by Susannah Sayler and Edward Morris, and a captivating living sculpture drawn from the forest’s basin by David Brooks.
Enduring Amazon offers a sequence of visual and aural operatic experiences that move from still imagery to sound-infused video, from life-based sculpture to color, light, and electronic music to create a mind-opening view into the Amazon—the mortal threat its collapse would mean to global ecosystems and Indigenous culture, as well as the breathtaking beauty, glory, and resilience of life that endures there today.
Free, no tickets required.
