    New Exhibit: Ana Vizcarra Radkin

    Ana Vizcarra Rankin: time/scale
    October 7, 2017 to November 5, 2017
    http://bit.ly/2wyG4xh

    In large-scale paintings and hand-crafted collages of astronomical constellations and world maps, Vizcarra Rankin investigates themes of space, time, and correlation and intertwines them with larger discussions about humanity, globalization, migration, and scientific exploration.
    Disorienting and startling, Ana Vizcarra Rankin’s poetic compositions reorient humanity’s relation to the universe, urging us to reconsider our assumptions about territorial boundaries and human impact on the planet and the cosmos. Looking up to the sky and down to the ground, Vizcarra Rankin collapses solar systems and earth into universal moments of time, space, and history.
    Ana Vizcarra Rankin: time/scale, elaborates on phenomenological aspects of ‘time scale’— applying personal moments of life to measure the relative distance and duration of social and cosmic history. Vizcarra Rankin reflects on both human existence in the world and the technical geologic term of timescale, questioning our established knowledge of geography and astronomy.
    The exhibition is curated by Philadelphia Contemporary and presented by the Brandywine River Museum of Art.

    Time: 9:30 am -5:00 pm

    Location: Brandywine Rivern Museum of Art, 1 Hoffman's Mill Rd, Route #1, Chadds Ford, PA 19317
