The Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis (CAM) presents Botanica absentia, an installation by St. Louis artist Margaret Keller. Botanica absentia creates a fictive memorial and archive dedicated to lost trees. Set in an imaginary future, after climate change has forced most living organisms toward either mutation or extinction, the installation serves as a commemoration to extinct tree species.
The exhibition, curated by the Teen Museum Studies program, is open to the public in CAM’s Education Gallery Sept. 6 through Dec. 29. Artist’s talk 7:15 p.m., Sept. 6.
