PRESENTED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH TRAVER GALLERY
Live webcast with Andrew Revkin of the Earth Institute
Sunday, July 19, 2020
7:30 AM PST / 10:30 AM EDT
Using an artistic rendering of the fossil record, past, present, and future, the exhibition reveals how our legacy as a species is inexorably tied to a value system designed to insure familial survival. Towards the transmission of this reality, Ivory exposes viewers to the global trade in illegal animal parts, it's flawed connection to power, and its devastating effects.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Joseph Rossano, born to clinicians and research scientists, graduated from Louisiana State University as an artist. His path joined him, via mentorship, collaboration, and exhibition, with renowned artists and institutions including Dale Chihuly, Judy Pfaff, The Pilchuck Glass School, Waterford Crystal, Museum of Glass, the South Australia Museum, and Google. Integrating cutting edge technology and science with his art, Rossano engages and challenges the viewer to reflect upon mankind’s impact on our planet and its varied ecosystems. Much of Rossano’s youth was spent in New York’s Hudson Valley and Catskill Mountains, formative years that evolved a life focused on creating environmental awareness through Art. Rossano now lives and works 65 miles north of Seattle, his home and studio nestled in the temperate rain forests of the Pacific Northwest.
