Upcoming Exhibitions 

Biophilia: Nature Reimagined
May 4–August 8, 2024 

The term "biophilia,” coined by American biologist and author Edward O. Wilson in his 1995 book, describes humankind’s innate affinity for the natural world, that persists despite the advancement of technology and urbanization. The Denver Art Museum presents an exhibition exploring contemporary design’s reflexive relationship to nature, featuring architectural models, furniture, objects, digital installations, and immersive art experiences by an international roster of designers and artists, including Iris van Herpen, Studio Gang, teamLab, Joris Laarman, and DRIFT, among others. Through a thematic approach, Biophilia reveals the ways in which contemporary architecture, design, and art evoke natural structures, relationships, and phenomena and inspire reflection on our relationships to each other and the natural world. See
