An Art That Nature Makes: The Work of Rosamond Purcell
Sunday, February 4, 2018
One of our favorite recent scoring projects, the Rosamond Purcell documentary, is showing for the first time locally (it premiered at the Film Forum in NYC and has been screening around the country). Museum admission at the ICA gets you a ticket, so make a day of it.
From the Institute for Contemporary Art calendar:
Finding unexpected beauty in the discarded and decayed, photographer Rosamond Purcell has developed a body of work that has garnered international acclaim, graced the pages of National Geographic and over 20 published books. An Art That Nature Makes details Purcell’s fascination with the natural world – from a mastodon tooth to a hydrocephalic skull – offering insight into her unique way of recontextualizing objects both ordinary and strange into sometimes disturbing but always breathtaking imagery.
Artist Rosamond Purcell will be in attendance and take questions after the screening.
