The Nature of Nature
September 6, 2014 - May 24, 2015
“The Nature of Nature” is the third installation in an innovative series connecting art with relevant issues in everyday life. In multiple mini-exhibitions spanning 10 galleries in the Target Wing, MIA curators probe our understanding of nature as depicted in contemporary and historical works of art from all areas of the museum’s permanent collection. By juxtaposing diverse works of art focused on a single theme, these installations invite visitors to explore fundamental ideas about our evolving relationship to nature over time, across cultures, and in our lives today.
