The staff at the Gregg Museum of Art & Design will lead a virtual tour of Andy Nasisse's Animate Earth - Adventures in Mimetolithia. In the deserts of the Southwest, Nasisse photographs amazing landforms that resemble ghosts, ancient statues or remnants of lost civilizations. In his studio, he makes ceramics that straddle the boundary between accidental and intentional, creating figures that seem to emerge from the clay on their own. All the while he engages with what is probably the most basic impulse of the human imagination: the tendency to “see things in things” through his heightened sense of pareidolia.
Registration is required.
