From June 18 – September 20, 2015, the Institute For Figuring’s Bleached Reef will be on display in the exhibition Night Begins the Day: Rethinking Space, Time, and Beauty, an examination of artistic responses to “the staggering immensity of nature,” at the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco.

The IFF’s Bleached Reef is an installation of handicrafted corals evoking, through the collective work of women, the beauty of living reefs and the threats they face from global warming. Reef design by Margaret and Christine Wertheim. Crochet coral pieces by Christine and Margaret Wertheim (CA/Australia), Marianne Midelburg (Australia), Nancy Lewis (VT), Helle Jorgensen (Australia), Sarah Simons (CA), Evelyn Hardin (TX), Arlene Mintzer (NY), Jill Schrier, (NY), Pamela Stiles (NY), Dagma Frinta (NY), Christina Simons (CA). With vintage doilies by unknown makers, and miniature beaded-coral towers by Nadia Severns (NY). The installation has been expanded and newly curated for this show.

Artists featured in Night Begins the Day include Institute For Figuring, Werner Herzog, Michael Light, The Long Now Foundation, and Fred Tomaselli.
