Artist Conversation: Merian's Daughters

Monika E. de Vries Gohlke, Amy Lamb, and Janaina Tschäpe

Join the artists and guests in conversation over wine and light refreshments.

Three contemporary artists in Super Natural credit Maria Sibylla Merian as a major influence on their performances, photography, videos, and prints. Merian’s adventuresome spirit, exacting technique, and willingness to insert herself in a strange place for the sake of art and science resonate with contemporary artists.

Enjoy gallery discussions with Gohlke, Lamb, and Tschäpe.

Super Natural focuses on historical and contemporary women artists’ unrestrained absorption with nature. Rather than merely document beauty, artists in the exhibition engage with the natural world as a space for exploration and invention.
