Clare Patey and Matthew Moore Explore Copper Politics, Artwork, and Identity at ASU Art Museum

Clare Patey and Matthew Moore come from very different worlds, but very similar perspectives.

Moore has made a name for himself in Phoenix with art projects that address the urbanization of farmland in Phoenix's outskirts and the sustainability of urban life. Patey is an internationally renowned artist who activates vacant space and shuts down a bridge every year in London to put on a sustainable feast.

For the last year, the artists have combined forces, gathered stories, collected data, and envisioned an exhibition at ASU Art Museum that examines an endangered element on the periodic table -- copper.
