Art Wise: Carla Gannis

Learn about the process and work of Carla Gannis, an interdisciplinary artist featured in our special exhibition Networked Nature, during an Art Wise presentation by the artist. Gannis’s video work uses animated emojis to digitally recreate the famous Hieronymus Bosch painting Garden of Earthly Delights, highlighting the human tendencies that have both remained and evolved over centuries. After hearing from the artist, explore the exhibition with a fresh perspective.


Recommended for mature audiences.


Regular admission applies; as always, members are free.
