Sonja Peterson: Transverse Travesties

Exhibition Website

Mar 6 2017 - Apr 22 2017

Looking to historical events and science to help absorb present day dilemmas, Peterson’s large-scale cut paper and sculptural works attempt loose comparative analysis through imaginative narratives pulled from across time and varied literary sources. “Whole worlds exist within the intricate details of her complex cuttings. Native plants and cultures clash with invaders. Historical events merge with present-day environmental dilemmas. The effects of globalization are intertwined with commerce and consciousness.” (City Pages, Minneapolis, Camille LeFevre)

Location: Robert L. Ringel Gallery, Stewart Center
