The Moody Center for the Arts presents Nature & Politics, an exhibition of color photographs depicting scientific research and manufactured landscapes by Thomas Struth. The images bear witness to specialized imaginations. Whether it is the technological developments that make space travel possible or experiments in plasma physics, all owe their existence to the ideas and designs of experts and raise questions about the ramifications of scientific progress.

The artist will be present for a panel discussion during the opening weekend when the Moody will inaugurate interdisciplinary conversations about technology and research —important and timely topics of global significance — and how our experience of them shapes our perceptions of the world.

The Saint Louis Museum of Art presents Thomas Struth: Nature and Politics, a photographic exploration of industrial and scientific research spaces featuring 35 large-scale works created within the past decade.

With monumental scale and vivid color, Struth investigates the complexities of sites where human knowledge, ambition, and imagination are advanced.  Technological subjects are interspersed with other recent work including images ranging in the whimsical, like Disneyland, to the grim, like the landscape of Israel’s West Bank.
