Saya Woolfalk: Field Notes from the Empathic Universe invites visitors to enter the kaleidoscopic
Saya Woolfalk: Field Notes from the Empathic Universe invites visitors to enter the kaleidoscopic and culturally hybrid worlds created by the artist. The exhibition features an immersive video installation exploring portraiture and a series of new mixed media collages, transformed by Woolfalk’s digitally-collaged murals. Known for her site-specific multimedia works that investigate global traditions and cultural difference, Woolfalk is the creator of the Empathics—fictional futuristic beings who time-travel and shape-shift across the multiverse. This installation initially premiered in 2021 at Newark Art Museum, where Woolfalk studied their herbaria (plant specimens) and landscape painting collections, reinterpreting these artifacts—and their relation to American identity—from the perspective of the Empathics.
