Next of Kin: Seeing Extinction through the Artist’s Lens

This exhibition will be closed Tuesday, July 11 from 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Exhibition on view through July 16, 2017

We live in a time when an alarming array of plants and animals struggle to even exist in a world that is increasingly dominated and altered by an exploding human population. Showcasing the work of artist Christina Seely, in collaboration with Susannah Sayler and Edward Morris of The Canary Project, this exhibition presents a provocative and powerful new perspective on the biodiversity extinction crisis.  Next of Kin: Seeing Extinction through the Artist’s Lens, uses special photography techniques, lighting and sound design, and specimens carefully chosen from the collections of Harvard’s Museum of Comparative Zoology to generate an exchange between the viewer and animal kingdom and evoke empathy with our “next of kin”. 

Next of Kin is supported by a generous gift from Clark Bernard MBA ‘68 and Susana Bernard.
