This exhibition engages the dichotomy of the natural and the artificialwhere the two diverge, where they overlap, and how one is manifest in the other. The artists included investigate not only their relationships to the natural and artificial world, but also the impact of such a distinction. Through a diverse and ambitious approach to material and installation, the exhibition brings together current SAIC students and recent alumni to explore the artificially natural, the naturally artificial, and everything in-between. Curated by Rachel M. Wolff (MA 2012), curatorial assistant, Department of Exhibitions. Artists include: Marissa Benedict and Luis Palacios (GRAFT), Samantha Bittman, Joseph G. Cruz, David R. Harper, Tara Hills, Saiko Kase, Min Jung Kim, Libby O'Bryan, Allison Wade, and Katie Waugh.

""An Ordinal of Alchemy" opening at Cabinet Magazine Gallery
Last summer at the Mildred's Lane Artist Residency, us fellows were asked to collaborate on a project for Cabinet Magazine's gallery space. Under the direction of Mark Dion and Robert Williams, we applied principles of alchemy to the creation of the piece which will make its debut at the Cabinet gallery later this month. I am very excited to see how our project comes together, and catch-up with good friends from Mildred's Lane. Please stop by the opening if you can, or check out the show later on. Cabinet is a great magazine, and such a good resource for unfettered information.
