Maggie Gourlay: Wallpapers for A Warming World

April 8-May 28, 2023

Public Reception: Saturday, May 13, 2023, 2-4 pm

At the intersection of the natural world and domestic space, Maggie Gourlay juxtaposes the built world against the natural environment. In her exhibition titled Wallpapers for a Warming World, the assumption that we are separate and immune from the events shaping our natural environment is questioned. Gourlay creates wallpaper patterns that take a nuanced look at our environmental complacency through the lenses of the beautification of domestic spaces versus decreasing biodiversity and the negative effects towards which we are marching.
