Cachet : Organic Matters

Two exhibits reflect on themes of nature, both real and imagined

Cachet : Organic Matters A biennial exhibit at the National Museum of Women in the Arts, “Organic Matters—Women to Watch 2015” examines the ways in which contemporary women artists view and treat nature in their work. Thirteen artists from the U.S., the U.K., Chile, France, and Italy were selected to exhibit in the show; their photographs, drawings, sculptures, and videos will be on view from June 5 to September 13.

A companion exhibit on the same dates,  “Super Natural” showcases the ways in which artists past and present engage with the natural world. Including 50 works and installations by 25 artists, the show will juxtapose early work with bold, modern creations. For example, viewers can study the stark contrast between 17th-century Dutch artist Rachel Ruysch’s floral still life and large-scale collaged images in Maggie Foskett’s Rain Forest (1996).

Both exhibits promise an adventurous trek through the wild—free of mosquitoes and humidity. 1250 New York Avenue, NW; 202-783-5000. nmwa.org.
