Pratt Manhattan Gallery presents Nectar: War Upon the Bees, a visual essay centered on the way that disregard for bees and the “faster, bigger, cheaper” approach to modern food production is leading to severe consequences for human survival. Through various artistic mediums, the work of nine artists speaks to the way that bees are representative of today’s growing environmental threats and creates a rich compilation of imagery that evokes an important and socially engaged mission.
Nectar: War Upon the Bees was curated by Berta Sichel – the former director of Media Arts at Madrid’s Museo Reina Sofia and the founder of Bureau Phi Art Projects. Featured artists include Suzanne Anker, Luis Fernando Ramirez Celis, Juan del Junco, Kelly Heaton, Marine Hugonnier, Ellie Irons and Anne Percoco, Lucía Madriz, Beth Moysés, and Carlos Schwartz.
Nectar: War upon the Bees continues at the Pratt Manhattan Gallery (144 West 14th Street, Second Floor, New York, NY) through February 11, 2017. The gallery is open Monday-Saturday, 11am-6pm, and Thursday until 8pm. Free and open to the public.
