The Brower Center is excited to offer an opportunity for gallery visitors to delve deeper into the research, process, and innovative techniques behind our current exhibition's striking infographics in a special evening with Richard Misrach. Misrach will offer a retrospective of his work, highlighting the dialogue between research and artistic practice, as well as the strategic choices he and Kate Orff made in creating the Petrochemical America body of work.

Based on the book Petrochemical America (Aperture 2012), the exhibit highlights the unique collaboration between Misrach and landscape architectKate Orff/SCAPE. Presented in an open studio format, this project brings into focus the complex economic and ecological forces that have shaped the industrial landscapes of the Mississippi River’s “Cancer Alley,” mapping cycles of resource extraction and transformation from a local to a global scale.
