Ballroom Marfa, 108 E. San Antonio St., Marfa, has scheduled “Hyperobjects,” a group exhibition co-organized by philosopher Timothy Morton and curator Laura Copelin, through September.

The exhibition takes its name and organizing principles from Morton’s 2013 book, “Hyperobjects: Philosophy and Ecology After the End of the World.” In Morton’s writing, hyperobjects are “entities that are so massively distributed in time and space as to transcend spatiotemporal specificity, such as global warming, styrofoam and radioactive plutonium.” The exhibition uses ideas from Morton’s theory to confront the overwhelming scale of today’s ecological crisis. The project includes objects and installations from the world of contemporary art alongside objects sourced from the local environment.

Gallery hours are from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.

Admission is free and open to the public.
