Sublime Sea: rapture and reality

14 Dec 2019 - 23 Feb 2020

Sublime Sea: rapture and reality is a spectacular immersive exhibition about the power of the sea in human imagination. Through superb examples of paintings, sculpture, photography, film and the decorative arts, the exhibition evokes the overwhelming experience of nature, from intrepid journeys and mysterious grottos to the infinite space of the ocean. The exhibition creates a new ‘cabinet of curiosities’, combining art and the natural sciences to chart the evolution of a ‘sublime’ perception of nature and the sea’s benevolence as a primal source of life. Contemporary works reflect new realities and insights into human interaction with the sea, the tragic voyages of refugees, threat of plastic pollution and alienation from natural forces.
An MPRG exhibition, curated by Dr Vivien Gaston.
