Instinct Gallery continues its fall run with an exhibition that taps into current awe, fear, and excitement (depending on who you ask) about interspecies interaction. The human animal, for example, has always worked to control its environment, with a sentience that may result in an artificial intelligence that will lead to our doom. On the other hand, aren’t we a creative and curious bunch, as the artists in this show — Chase Boston, Kate Casanova, Sean Connaughty, Alison Hiltner, Eric William Carroll, and show curator John Schuerman — will aptly demonstrate. Endlessly inventive, with concerns that span and integrate science and art, these artists will confirm, upend, and illuminate our notions of what we consider human and nonhuman, organic and synthetic. It’s a perfect show for Instinct, which originated several years ago with the intention of examining just these concepts and questions. There will be an opening reception on Saturday, November 12, from 6 to 8 p.m.
