Solo exhibition at the Nevada Museum of Art, Reno, Nevada, USA
September 27, 2008 - May 17, 2009
Curated by Ann Wolfe
A native of Ireland, Katie Holten creates artworks that bring people together to investigate human impact on the natural environment. Often made from recycled materials, her thoughtful renderings of maps, plants, and ecological phenomena encourage dialogue on issues ranging from biodiversity to global warming. Atlas of Memory includes a selection of Holten’s colorful globes, as well as new drawings from metropolitan cities around the world—including Reno. Holten represented Ireland in the 2003 Venice Biennale.
Katie Holten: Atlas of Memory will be on exhibit September 27, 2008 through May 17, 2009 at the Nevada Museum of Art, Donald W. Reynolds Center for the Visual Arts, E. L. Wiegand Gallery located at 160 West Liberty Street in downtown Reno.
This exhibition is presented as part of the Art + Environment series, an initiative of the Nevada Museum of Art that brings community, artists, and scholars together to explore the interaction between people and their environments.
