    schema:description ""Accompanying an exhibition of the same name, 'Natural Wonders' showcases the work of thirteen celebrated American artists who offer multimedia representations of the natural world and the impact of human intervention, revealing fresh and evolving guises of sublimity for the twenty-first century. 'Natural Wonders' spotlights works by Maya Lin, Roxy Pain, Diana Thater, Dustin Yellin, and others, that probe the porous border between the natural and artificial realms -- between the wild and cultivated. This timely and relevant exhibitino at the Brandywine River Museum of Art in Chadds Ford, PA, highlights nature's splendor while at the same time hinting at its more disquieting facets. Through an engaging mix of installations, video, dioramas, photography, and sculpture, the works create an experience of the neo-sublime, mixing the beautiful and the unsettling to produce awe in the beholder. Ultimately this assemblage encourages us to be more attentive to our natural surroundings, in both their benign and baneful aspects. These enticing works also address pressing issues such as habitat loss, environmental toxins, bioengineering, and increasing alienation from nature, offering both diagnosis and prescription for our cultural condition. The books introductory essays provides a broad cultural and historical context for the contemporary work, complemented by statements from the exhibited artists and a reflective dialogue between environmentally minded artists Mark Dion and Alexis Rockman.""@en ;
