Staging Nature

Friday, September 15, 2017 to Saturday, December 2, 2017
Kemper at the Crossroads

Reproducing the images and experience of nature is one of the great traditions of artmaking. Staging Nature explores, in works from the Permanent Collection of the Kemper Museum, some of the many ways that nature is inspiration and subject for artists. The human figure, animal forms, rolling landscapes, an animated universe of tumbling orbs, and crafted stage settings engage, delight, and challenge our perceptions and beg the question “What is real?”
