In Migration/Adaptation in the Anthropocene, Maggie Gourlay will transform CulturalDC’s SPACE4: Mobile Art Gallery into an immersive environment where visitors can learn about threats to our climate and engage in small actions that can make a big difference. Shipping containers often transport more than just their cargo, bringing invasive species to new climates. Gourlay will call attention to specific insects who have been brought to our region via shipping containers and who wreak havoc on local agriculture. Their “bug portraits” will crawl along the walls, leading viewers through the exhibit. At one end of the container, Gourlay will set up planters with grow lights.
