Mark Dion and Marc Mayer Talk


Mark Dion is an artist whose work examines the ways in which dominant ideologies and public institutions shape our understanding of history, knowledge, and the natural world. In Dion’s practice, the lines between art and science are often blurred. On the opening of his exhibition, The Life of a Dead Tree, the artist is joined by Marc Mayer for a lively discussion that focuses on the intersections between art and science in relation to nature and how these considerations manifest in his exhibition at MOCA.
