Multisensory Exhibition ‘Biophilia: Nature Reimagined’ Opening at the DAM!

DAM Denver Art Museum

In summer 2024, the Denver Art Museum (DAM) will present Biophilia: Nature Reimagined, a multisensory exhibition that brings more than 70 imaginative works, including architectural models and photographs, objects, fashion, digital installations and immersive art experiences that coleively highlight the transformative power of nature.

Dates: Biophilia will be on view May 5-Aug. 11, 2024 in the museum’s Anschutz and Martin and McCormick galleries on level 2 of the Hamiton Building.

The exhibit features works by an international roster of designers and artists including Iris van Herpen, Studio Gang, teamLab, Joris Laarman and DRIFT, and others.  “Biophilia” is the term popularized by American biologist and author Edward O. Wilson to describe his theory that, as humans have evolved as a species, they have been intricately intertwined with the natural world. WIlson’s hypothesis invites deep reflection and poses relevant questions for audiences to consider life in our hyper-accelerated digital and urban-centric world. Organized by Darrin Alfred, Curator of Architecture and Design at DAM, Biophilia provides a space for leading architects, arts and designers to re-examine and reanimate our intrinsic bond with the natural world. 

Biophilia is organized into three themes, based on the aspects of nature that most impact our well-being:

  1. Natural Analogs: Form and Pattern
  2. Natural Systems: Processes and Phenomena
  3. Topophilia: People and Place

The price is included in general admission. Reminder: general admission is free every day for visitors 18 and under, thanks to the Free for Kids program presented by Bellco Credit Union.
