MAM Conversations: Alexis Rockman
Alexis Rockman blends reality and fantasy to examine humanity’s relationship with the environment. His eerily dystopian canvases are both recognizable and disorienting, and express concern about global warming, the fragility of the world’s ecosystems, and the impact of human activity on earth. Come with MAM Conversations as we talk with Rockman about his recent watercolors and how his monumental painting Pond Life has inspired new work. Pond Life will be on view when the museum reopens as part of the permanent collection exhibition Uncaged: Animals in the Collection.
