The award-winning Canadian artist explores notions of power through the imagery of science fiction in portraits, sculpture, and objects.
Temple Contemporary — the Tyler School of Art and Architecture’s center for exhibitions and public programs — presents the Philadelphia debut of Beyond the Words of Earth, an otherworldly-inspired solo show by multi-disciplinary Toronto-based artist Rajni Perera.
On view through March 3, 2023, the exhibition invites viewers into a future where borders, imperialist capitalism, and ecological collapse have birthed the survival of Travellers — a humanoid species whose multi-ancestral technologies have allowed them to recreate planetary and interplanetary relations.
