#art912: Avanguardia

Exhibition Website

Nov 17 2017 - Mar 11 2018

Avanguardia, an exhibition by Savannah-based artist Lisa D. Watson (American, b. 1967), explores the encroach­ment of the constructed environment on the natural landscape. Watson uses 95 percent reclaimed materials in her artmaking to keep her ecological footprint small. Her environmentally-conscious practice amplifies the exhibition’s primary concerns: that modern conveniences demanded by a growing human population can destroy indigenous wildlife and ecological habitats, and that humanity should strive to strike a balance between the vigor of a burgeoning city and the energy of its natural surroundings. Avanguardia is part of Telfair Museums’ #art912 initiative, a dedicated platform to showcase the work of Savannah artists.
