Botanical Relations Exhibition Reception

Peter Henderson, Dragon Arum

February 14, 2019 at 5:00 p.m.

Join the Museum in celebrating the exhibition Botanical Relations, open January 26 through March 31. The reception is free, and refreshments will be served.

Drawn from various collections at The University of Arizona, Botanical Relations explores the nature of plant life both above and below the ground. The exhibition investigates concepts of the individuality of plants, vegetal eroticism, and vegetal violence. Some of the objects reflect scientific accuracy while others are reinterpreted through the artist’s imagination.

The reception follows the talk “Vegetal Eroticism, Imagining Our Botanical Relations,” presented by Joela Jacobs – the exhibition’s co-curator.

Funding for this reception is provided by the College of Humanities.
