Renowned transmedia artist Matthew Ritchie invites viewers to experience the richness and fragility of the world by connecting such fields as philosophy and mythology, epic poetry and science fiction, and history and physics. This exhibition’s interweaving of paradise and chaos offers a meditation on art’s capacity to help overcome our current social fragmentation—to be a connective tissue that is healing and beautiful.
A Garden in the Flood will feature dramatic paintings, architectural structures and elaborate diagrams, and a hallucinatory animation made through artificial intelligence. At its heart will be a new video work with a sound bed specially commissioned from renowned composer Hanna Benn in collaboration with the Grammy Award–winning Fisk Jubilee Singers.
Intellectually and physically engaging, Ritchie’s work is simultaneously rife with ideas and visually alluring—and now appropriately presented in Nashville, an expanding city where interdisciplinary collaborations are ever increasing.
Organized by the Frist Art Museum.
