London, United Kingdom
Mia Feuer's new project for the Corcoran is a haunting vision of nature consumed, transformed, and twisted by human need. Inspired by the artist's experiences in landscapes of oil production, An Unkindness explores the relationships between failed infrastructure, the natural world, and environmental catastrophe. Feuer is the first Washington, D.C.-based artist to be featured in a NOW at the Corcoran exhibition. On this evening, she discusses her work, artistic inspiration, and why there is a petroleum ice rink in the Corcoran's Rotunda.
