Listening to the Anthropocene will coincide and connect with the 2019 Brown Symposium, as described by curator Douglas Cushing:
This exhibition gives a voice to the world that humanity has shaped and cast as other and external, even while remaining inextricably a part of it. We are in nature and nature is in us; what we do to nature we do to ourselves reflexively. Yet, we seem willfully unaware to such relations. We assume our world mute when we should stop and listen to it speak. Listening to the Anthropocene seeks to give the othered world—object, landscape, and non-human living organism—an equal place in a discourse regarding the manner in which humans live in and with the world, transforming in countless ways. Art, here, acts as mediator, translator and teacher, so that the world beyond us might be heard and fully recognized.
Listening to the Anthropocene includes work by Cynthia Camlin (Mount Vernon, WA), Erik Hagen (Houston, TX), Kelly Jazvac (Montreal, Canada), and Lorella Paleni (Paris, France).
Listening to the Anthropocene will be on exhibit at the Sarofim Fine Arts Gallery from February 2- March 3, 2019. The Fine Arts Gallery is open daily from 12:00-5:00 p.m., excluding Mondays and holidays.
This exhibit’s closing reception will be held on February 27th from 6:00-7:00 p.m., in accordance with the 2019 Brown Symposium.
This exhibit is made possible by the generous philanthropic support of Lynn Parr Mock ’83 and Presley M. Mock ’82.

E.TAY Gallery is pleased to present Dwellers, a solo exhibition of paintings by Lorella Paleni. Paleni’s work investigates the relationships between humans and animals. Her paintings are tangled scenes of encounters in the wild that invite viewers to grapple with their own ecological consciousness.
Through a process of overlapping, erasing, adding and scraping, dynamic landscapes emerge on Paleni’s canvases. Colors and compositions are arranged in a conflicting manner that evokes both mysticism and sinister intent. While the natural environment dominates the pictorial landscape, ambiguous human characters invade the settings to disrupt the harmony.
In Dwellers, gloved human hands, ghostly industrious figures, monkeys, branches, and other beings inhabit the paintings. The foreground and background intersect with the creatures in an inextricable mesh illustrating that, despite the estrangement between human and nonhuman worlds, they are invariably part of an intricate whole.
Paleni’s paintings are an attempt to question the power structure that lies at the root of our reasoning to question human exceptionalism and imagine new possibilities of existence in the world. The work seems to acknowledge that society is hierarchical, and that the few who rise to the top often do so at the expense of the voiceless.
