Encounters: Courtney Egan
Sunday, April 16 | 12 p.m. – 5 p.m.
View the museum’s newest exhibition, Encounters: Courtney Egan. New Orleans video artist Courtney Egan creates projection-based sculptural installations that meld nature with technology, delivering an experience that is both pleasing and disconcerting. The ethereal projections – converging on walls, floors and sculptural elements – are inspired by the growing frequency of human exposure to nature via computers or television. Egan creates stunning yet “subtly impossible, hybrid tableaus” which envelop the viewer in a conversation between the memory of the natural world and a new experience with a plant or flower. She explains the fundamental irony of the experience, stating, “We get closer and farther away from the natural world simultaneously when we experience it through a technological lens.” Organized by HMA.
