Elizabeth Schlatter, Deputy Director and Curator of Exhibitions and Kenta Murakami (’15, art history major), a student curatorial assistant for the University of Richmond Museums discuss the art exhibition, Anti-Grand: Contemporary Perspectives on Landscape. The exhibition features 24 contemporary, international artists, artists’ collectives and game developers who examine, challenge, and re-define the concept of landscape while simultaneously drawing attention to humanity’s hubristic attempts to relate to, preserve, and manage the natural environment. Anti-Grand includes 33 works of art, with video, installation, video games, and traditional two- and three-dimensional work.
