Los Angeles-based artist Lauren Bon and the Optics Division of her Metabolic Studio have undertaken a deep exploration of how these forces impact humans and our habitats. The studio’s current initiative, focused on the Owens Valley region of eastern California to the LA River and beyond, uses art produced in collaboration with the landscape itself as a medium to engage community and effect positive social change.
The Nevada Museum of Art, Donald W. Reynolds Center for the Visual Arts, E. L. Wiegand Gallery, welcomes the latest creation to emerge from these efforts, Lauren Bon & The Optics Division Team: Transforming Inert Landscape into Agency. The exhibition draws from the extensive project archives collected by the Center for Art + Environment and will be on display Nov. 23, 2013, through May 25, 2014. Sponsorship is provided by the John Ben Snow Memorial Trust.
