The University Art Gallery is delighted to present Nathalie Miebach’s Stay Healthy and Strong.
Beginning with numbers, Miebach tells stories. Meteorological data from extreme weather events, data about Covid-19 deaths and infection rates, and anecdotal information from news reports and social media are painstakingly translated into delicate, complex, colorful objects and musical scores.
Miebach’s work asks us to consider the representation and interpretation of data. It makes overwhelming events intimate and personal, and asks us to connect numbers with experience.
Climate change and its devastating impact on communities, Covid-19 and our distance from our loved ones, are made visible. Aesthetics is used to further the understanding of complex scientific systems.
Stay Healthy and Strong is on view in the University Art Gallery from August 24 through October 9.
Please join us! Miebach will present her work in conversation in Guerry Auditorium at 5 p.m. on September 14, 2022. Reception to follow.
Miebach's exhibition and campus visit have been made possible with the support of Art, Art History and Visual Studies, Music, SIPE, and the University Lectures Committee. Thank you!
