Many contemporary artists are integrating environmental themes into their work. Few, however, can rival the centrality of the ecological themes in the work of photographer and artist Chris Jordan. Chris Jordan: Intolerable Beauty is a stunning exhibition and visual journey into exploring the consequences of mass consumption and global plastics pollution in the ocean and on earth.
Intolerable Beauty draws from five bodies of photographic and video works spanning 2003 to current works-in-progress: Intolerable Beauty: Portraits of American Mass Consumption (2003 - 2005); Midway: Message from the Gyre (2009 - Current); Camel Gastrolith (2016); Albatross (2017); and work in progress (2019).
