Chazen Museum of Art | Our Kind of Happy Hour: Kota Ezawa

September 23, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Join us Thursday, September 23rd at 6:30 pm on Facebook Live to hear from artist Kota Ezawa on the process of creating and the meaning behind his video collage, City of Nature (2010).
City of Nature is an alternative to the mainstream nature film and is intended to draw the viewer’s attention to the unnatural way that popular culture aestheticizes the natural world. It incorporates seventy scenes of nature from twenty diverse films and TV shows where nature plays a seminal role or where flora and fauna could be considered primary characters.
City of Nature is on view for the entire 2021–2022 academic year in the Chazen’s Mayer Gallery in the Elvehjem building.
