The World to Come

Art in the Age of the Anthropocene

Study Group Study Group
Join us for a guided tour of this exquisite exhibit at the University of Michigan Museum of Art led by Jen Friess.

The World to Come: Art in the Age of the Anthropocene awakens us to the physical and social effects of the Anthropocene, a much-debated term used to define a new geological epoch shaped by human activity. Structured around ecological issues, the exhibition presents photography, video, and sculpture that address subjects and themes related to raw materials, disasters, consumption, loss, and justice. More than thirty-five international artists, including Sammy Baloji, Liu Bolin, Dana Levy, Mary Mattingly, Pedro Neves Marques, Gabriel Orozco, Trevor Paglen, and Thomas Struth, respond to dire global and local circumstances with resistance and imagination—sustaining an openness, wonder, and curiosity about the world to come.

This is a single session study group for Osher LIfelong Learning Institute (OLLI) members.

Advance registration is required due to limited capacity.
