Artist Talk | Alexis Rockman

Alexis Rockman ranks among the most accomplished eco-artists working today.  His vivid, large canvases explore the impact that the migration of goods, people, plants, and animals has had and continues to have on our planet. Learn more about the artist and his work during this fascinating talk, and be sure to visit his piece, The Calms of Capricorn, currently on view in  The Nature of Art exhibition.

Born in 1962 in New York, Alexis Rockman has depicted a darkly surreal vision of the collision between civilization and nature – often apocalyptic scenarios on a monumental scale – for over three decades. Notable solo museum exhibitions include “Alexis Rockman: Manifest Destiny” at the Brooklyn Museum (2004), “Alexis Rockman: Shipwrecks” at Princeton University Art Museum (2022), and most recently “Alexis Rockman and Mark Dion: A Journey to Nature’s Underworld” at the Bruce Museum, Greenwich, CT in Summer 2023. Rockman’s work is represented in many museum collections, including the Baltimore Museum of Art, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Smithsonian American Art Museum, and Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.
