Categories: Events + Outreach

The dedication of
Everything Was Forever Until It Was No More
by Julian Charrière has been postponed due to weather and will be rescheduled.

This program is in celebration of one of the newest additions to MIT’s Public Art Collection. Julian Charrière works in multiple mediums creating elegant conceptual works of art. This is a site-specific work that will serve as the new lobby and grand entryway to the Department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences, the Environmental Solutions Initiative, and the MIT-Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute Joint Program.

About the Artist

Julian Charrière’s work examines the representation and perception of the natural world in an age of planetary ecological change. He is known for his elegant conceptual works that investigate how humans inhabit the world, and how it in turn inhabits us. Charrière’s first major public art commission in the United States is installed at MIT’s new Tina and Hamid Moghadam Building (Building 55), designed by Cambridge-based Anmahian Winton Architects.
