What Will Remain: Art in the Time of Human Dominion is a group exhibition of 29 artists whose work explores the inseparability of humans and nature; recognizing that humans have clearly marked the earth in a way that may be detectible millennia from now when future archaeologists dig through sediments yet to be. Through lyrical visions, metaphor, and visual play, and using varied media, ranging from painting, drawing, sculpture, ceramics, photography, video, digital media, and documentation, these artists explore ramifications on the environment resulting from a human-centric viewpoint. The implicit question is what will remain if humans do not reframe their viewpoint to one of partnership with all other life? What Will Remain highlights faculty in the Visual & Performing Arts at Orange Coast College, representing a microcosm of worldwide concerns over the planet's rapidly changing condition. Organized by the Frank M. Doyle Arts Pavilion, Orange Coast College, and curated by Tyler Stallings, director and senior curator at The Doyle.
