IRA GREENBERG: BEASTS

EXPANDED.ART is pleased to present BEASTS by IRA GREENBERG in partnership with EMERGENT PROPERTIES on view at the gallery from 29 MARCH to 16 APRIL. The exhibition will include an expansive universe created by the artist‘s code and generative AI, and drawings exploring generative systems by hand.

"My life is pretty much controlled by beasts, it always has been. I engage with beasts directly and very physically in my space: cats, dogs, mice, pack rats, horses, birds, squirrels, dragonflies, bees, cockroaches, fire ants. Other interactions are less tangible: parasites, bacteria, viruses.

Some beasts are not physical at all. Yet their presence is equally impactful (maybe more so). When I think about my family history and stories of urgent emigration, fleeing war zones with protracted dislocations, I’m reminded of other kinds of beasts, those who impact outer and inner lives.

This Generative AI long-form project explores beasts as both physical manifestations of nature’s generative power and the beasts lurking within, including those within the collective unconscious."
