The Globe’s Cate McQuaid reviewed Emerson Contemporary’s latest exhibition, “Georgie Friedman: Hurricane Lost,” noting “[Friedman’s] installations about nature evoke awe and human frailty.” The exhibition about our changing climate and extreme weather is free and open to the public through April 4 in the gallery at 25 Avery Street.
Yes, “Hurricane Lost” is harrowing. But it’s also a cathedral. The darkened gallery, with its illuminated, rhythmic videos, is a place to go to get right with yourself. To assess your own size in the face of such ferocious grandeur — or at least its safe facsimile. And to steel your resolve about what’s to come.
Curator Dr. Leonie Bradbury is the Henry and Lois Foster Chair of Contemporary Art Theory and Practice and Distinguished Curator-in-Residence, Emerson Contemporary.
WBUR interviewed Bradbury and Friedman about the exhibition.
