See Yourself E(x)ist

PRATT MANHATTAN GALLERY EXHIBITION IMAGINES THE FUTURE OF HUMANS AND NATURE

A selection of artist experiments, prototypes and biohacking

WHAT: In See Yourself E(x)ist, Pratt Manhattan Gallery presents incidences of human interaction—with animals, insects, leaves, trees, earth, and time—that yield extraordinary artifacts, engineered forms of hope, and objects of power. They’ve taken the form of robots, video, paintings, sculpture, and objects to interact with.

The exhibition features work from eighteen artists including painters, jewelry and clothing designers, mixed media and installation artists, prosthetic and designers. They address our human future in nature and our inevitable transformation, evolution, and decay.

See Yourself E(x)ist is curated by Madeline Schwartzman, author of See Yourself Sensing: Redefining Human Perception (2011) and See Yourself X: Human Futures Expanded (2017).
