Mark Dion and Alexis Rockman

Journey to Nature’s Underworld

With Contributions by Lucy R. Lippard and Patrick Jaojoco
Highlights the ecological concerns shared by two closely allied artists.
Contemporary artists Mark Dion and Alexis Rockman are widely recognized for work that engages issues of natural history, scientific practice, and the imperiled environment. This catalog, which accompanies the first two-person survey exhibition of the artists, spans thirty-five years of their work and offers a compelling tour into the shadowy depths of the threatened natural world, spotlighting some twenty-five sculptures and paintings, along with selected works on paper and an epic collaborative diorama created especially for this exhibition. Featuring an introduction by Suzanne Ramljak, an essay by Lucy R. Lippard, and a joint interview with the artists by Patrick Jaojoco, the book probes our strained relationship with the environment and the consequences of reigning ideologies about nature.
