Sprague Gallery is pleased to announce the installation of Artificial Ecosystem, a body of work by Liza Gull (HMC). Initially prompted by the experience of creating her first artwork for Art 2 HM Modern & Contemporary Art Practices (Fall 2021) taught by professor of art Ken Fandell, Gull has executed through Independent Study (Spring 2022), also with Fandell, an exploration of light, material, and both interplay and tension between natural and artificial, complete and incomplete, and private and public. The works in the exhibition use tools and techniques learned from the HMC Makerspace and objects and materials that are reclaimed, failed, or shared.

Liza Gull – Artificial Ecosystem opens on April 28 and continues through May 12, 2022. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 8AM to 5PM. As a precautionary measure, the exhibition is open to students, faculty, and staff of The Claremont Colleges and registered visitors. Masks are required indoors and encouraged outside. The Covid-19 guidelines will be updated as new information becomes available.

The exhibition is curated by arts director Julia Hong of the HMC Department of Humanities, Social Sciences, and the Arts.
