In her first museum exhibition in the United States, Irish artist Katie Holten joins the Contemporary Art Museum, St. Louis, as an artist-in-residence to create her largest and most ambitious work to date. The exhibition presents a new site-specific indoor installation that explores global ecology and social gestures within moments of environmental crisis. Interested in our fragile ecology from an international perspective—while also considering local concerns—Holten’s work is a relative, aesthetic proposition for community-friendly solutions. She renders nature essential, and in the process asks individuals and communities to ponder their natural environment, and to consider human fragility in an uncertain future.
Exhibition dates: May 18–August 5, 2007.
