Matéa LeBeau: What Remains

Friday, September 24, 2021 at 8:00am to 4:30pm

Experimental Gallery, Tjaden Hall

What Remains is a personal exploration of extinction in the context of climate change. Through the use and depiction of archaic technologies, petroleum based materials, photography, and printmaking, the works in this show highlight the nature of extinction as a current contemplation. As nature coexists with abandoned oil infrastructure and integrates its iron remains into the landscape, one can't help but be reminded that the earth will carry on, with or without us. Reckoning with the long-term, concealed, and deeply integrated influence of the oil industry, What Remains invites you to imagine a world post fossil fuels.

What Remains features work from Matéa LeBeau (B.F.A. '22).

Partially funded by the Gibian-Rosewater Traveling Research Award.
Masks must be worn at all times in the Tjaden and Experimental Galleries.
