Remote Possibilities: Digital Landscapes from the Thoma Foundation Collection

Remote Possibilities: Digital Landscapes from the Thoma Foundation Collection brings together six of the world’s foremost contemporary artists to engage the tradition of landscape art. John Gerrard, Kent Monkman, Bruce Nauman, Jennifer Steinkamp, Leo Villareal, and Marina Zurkow use digital technologies in the artistic pursuit of veritable representation, the digital sublime, humanity’s need for control over the wild, and meaning-making of our natural world. The result is an exploration that is both ethical and sensory, pleasurable and devious.
