MAEP Artist Talk: Alison Hiltner

Last occurred: Thursday, May 18 at 7:00 pm

Hear MAEP artist Alison Hiltner discuss her exhibition, “It Is Yesterday.”

For her MAEP exhibition, Hiltner has created a responsive environment that explores the symbiosis between algae and humans. Equal parts experimental laboratory and functioning mechanized interior environment, the installation immerses audiences in a landscape influenced by science fiction, yet populated by real organisms, confusing fact and fantasy. By forging a localized personal connection with sensor data, this work provides an intimate approach to climate issues. This exhibition is part of the Minnesota Artists Exhibition Program, located in Mia’s U.S. Bank Gallery.

Held in conjunction with Mia’s Third Thursday event. Grab a drink in the lobby after the talk.
