Description


Brandon Ballengée, artist/ biologist/environmental activist, will transform the Feldman Gallery booth into a space to mourn the massive extinction of species, often referred to as the Holocene or Sixth Great Extinction, which continues at an alarming rate. Pioneering in ecological art, Ballengée has been described by the critic and curator Kim Levin “as taking these issues to a new level of intensity.” He conceptualizes material of great consequence, and the installation is both a cri du coeur and a call to action that balances the evocative with the proactive.
