JANET LAURENCE Reviews: ‘After Nature’ at the Museum of Contemporary Art

May 3, 2019

Janet Laurence’s solo show ‘After Nature’ is currently on display at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney and will continue until 10 June 2019. Described by the MCA as a powerful survey of one of Australia’s leading contemporary artists, ‘After Nature’ involves key works and an ethereal large-scale commission ‘Theatre of Trees’.

‘After Nature’ draws from political and environmental concerns about the way the Earth is both exploited and admired by humans. Already, the show has sparked significant debate in published reviews.
