  • Venue’s debut last week at the Nevada Museum of Art coincided with the premiere of a new exhibition there: Edward Burtynsky: Oil. This thematic show, on display through September 23, features nearly 50 large-format images that, taken together, tell the story of oil, from its origins, extraction, and processing in the tar sands of Alberta or the first offshore platforms in Azerbaijan, through the spaghetti junctions and motorcycle rallies that represent oil’s spatial, infrastructural, and cultural footprint, all the way to oil’s afterlife in mountains of compacted barrels and broken tankers in the Bay of Bengal.
