Allison Maria Rodriguez: Earth Oracles

January 31 - March 22

Allison Maria Rodriguez: Earth Oracles
Curated by Associate Professor Yuko Oda and Gallery Director Deborah Santoro

The UMass Lowell Department of Art & Design is thrilled to present Earth Oracles, an immersive multimedia installation by Allison Maria Rodriguez. Earth Oracles will be on view from January 31 – March 22 in the University Gallery in Mahoney Hall, 870 Broadway Street, Lowell, MA.

Allison Maria Rodriguez’s video installations immerse the audience in experiential spaces that ask the viewer to consider alternative ways of relating to animals and the environment. While focusing on climate change and species extinction, Rodriguez’s work transports visitors to a hallowed space inhabited by endangered animals, adorned with colorful, layered landscapes, existing gloriously in heightened and super saturated moving imagery. By transforming video monitors into stained glass windows and galleries into cathedral-like spaces, Rodriguez builds an alternative world where the animal kingdom is revered in all its beauty and mystery. In considering the possibilities for multi-species flourishing on Earth, Rodriguez reveals the wisdom that non-human species such as sharks, cougars, and dolphins offer to those who listen. In Earth Oracles, Rodriguez blends Indigenous perspectives with theory, technology, and compassion to create a moment that is simultaneously a celebration and a call to action.
