Zach Smith is curating a new group exhibition titled The Lorax Poemsat Brooklyn’sGood Work Gallery, opening October 3.
The show negotiates the “space between science and poetry”, highlighting artists whose works are inspired by a steady diet of both populist and academic contemporary media to create what they hope is “a paean to the natural world”.
Taking its name from Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax, a forest entity known for saying what nobody much wants to hear and eventually banishing himself just as his pessimistic prophecies come to fruition, the group exhibition features the works of eight artists, including Ella Görner, Michael Assiff, Carson Fisk-VittoriandCecilia Salama.
