Nature and art collide to showcase the understated significance of flora and fauna in our delicate relationship with the planet. October's Untitled event—with the theme "in/visible”—is inspired by the creative practice of Lauri Lynnxe Murphy, and the exhibitions Claude Monet: The Truth of Nature and The Light Show.
