A Transparent Leaf instead of The Mouth is the first institutional solo exhibition in the United States by Daniel Steegmann Mangrané. The exhibition will be presented at the Center for Curatorial Studies, in the CCS Bard Galleries from June 23 to October 14, 2018 and is organized by Lauren Cornell, Director of the Graduate Program and Chief Curator. 

 

Taking its title from the large-scale installation A Transparent Leaf instead of The Mouth (2017–18), which is a glass pavilion containing a dynamic ecosystem that combines local foliage and foreign insects, the exhibition will include a cross section of his past work in 16mm film, drawing, holography, and installation, alongside newly commissioned sculpture and installation. His early aspirations to be a biologist manifest in works about permutation, mutation, and transformation across materials and life forms.
