Out of the Strong, Something Sweet is Cole Swanson’s most ambitious project to date. Through the lens and practice of art, Swanson examines the modern honey bee crisis (mass insect death and the subsequent effects on agriculture and commerce) and the intersections of human, bee and bovine biologies. Out of the Strong, Something Sweet features large scale installations of animal bodies, pre-modern art forms, sculptural media, and emergent technologies.
On Wednesday, March 30 at 7 pm, AGG will launch the corresponding exhibition catalogue featuring guest essays by Ashley McLellan and Carolyne Topdjian and a foreword by Dawn Owen (AGG) with a free reception and artist talk.
