PREVIEW: The World to Come: Art in the Age of the Anthropocene

The new exhibition The World to Come: Art in the Age of the Anthropocene at the University of Michigan Museum of Art is an ecological-issue-focused exploration of “subjects and themes related to raw materials, disasters, consumption, loss, and justice.” Over 45 international artists, using a variety of mediums, are featured. In the new reality where humans shape the environment, what will be art’s role?

I am particularly interested in this exhibition because it is a blend of two of my strongest interests, art and environmentalism.

The World to Come is on display from April 27 through July 28, 2019.
