The Drop is a conceptual exhibition that poses questions about the current environmental landscape in order to foster a deeper understanding of our natural resources and environment. The debates and concerns over the sustainability of the environment have become increasingly complex as systems for environmental erosion are constantly in flux. Cross-disciplinary dialogues amongst scientists, artists, environmentalists, conservationists, and historians are more important than ever in tackling our current world water issues. THE DROP will present 26 unique perspectives that will add to this ongoing discourse.
Some of the topics being explored in THE DROP include: global warming, pollution, shortages, over-building, government regulations, privatization of public lands and the subsequent degradation of our natural environment. The multidisciplinary artworks and installations in this timely exhibition project have a two-fold purpose; to inform the audience about global water issues, and to propose ideas to reclaim, restore and remedy environments so that we can co-exist with nature.
