Imagined Realities is a temporary exhibition at Sustainability Park (SPark) that is dedicated to artistic research that explores the intertwined concepts of energy and sustainability. This exhibition considers concepts interwoven in both challenges and solutions to sustainable living – from the conundrum of envisioning utopia to the aura of the apocalyptic potentials that often drive sustainable endeavors.

Imagined Realities is really about thinking through all of our aesthetic, social, philosophical, and pragmatic relations to the world in which we live,” stated Courtney Lane Stell, guest curator for the exhibition. “Here, artists encourage a critical, reflective, and engaging approach to this topic-- a topic that is normally approached through political or commercial avenues. This exhibition is not about answers it’s more about a pluralistic dialogue.”

-Cortney Lane Stell, Curator

The exhibition will include seven sculptural works that engage the concept of sustainability and humanity’s relation to the earth and nature. The artworks within the exhibition were selected for their ability to broaden definitions of sustainability as well as illuminate and discuss current ideas in relation to art disciplines.

Participating Artists: Donald Fodness, Matthew Harris, Lisa Moses and Adam Brock, Alvin Gregorio, Brian Evans, Trine Bumiller, The M12 Collective and Daniel Hipolito

This exhibition was made possible by the generous support of Mile High Connects, National Endowment for the Arts, Ford Foundation, The Denver Foundation, Biennial of the Americas Denver 2013, Denver Housing Authority & Nokero.
