Saya Woolfalk, The Four Virtues (Prudence), 2017.

Saya Woolfalk: Life Products and the ChimaCloud is the third installment of the ongoing Rotherwas Project exhibition series, which situates contemporary art in the Mead’s historic Rotherwas Room. Woolfalk, a New York multimedia artist, uses science-fiction and fantasy in her work as she explores science, race, sex and hybridity, traversing a range of topics including culture, race, and globalization in a way that encourages museum-goers to reflect on their own cultural consciousness.

The exhibition is organized by Vanja Malloy, curator of American art.
