      EVENT DETAILS
      Anthropocene Art Lecture: Catherine Chalmers

      Artist and photographer Catherine Chalmers will join Curator of Photography Dan Leers and Anthropocene Curator Dr. Nicole Heller to discuss Chalmers’ art practice and award-winning short film Leafcutters, currently featured in Carnegie Museum of Natural History’s Anthropocene Living Room.

      Chalmers’ work examines life in the Anthropocene, the proposed name of the current geological epoch when humans have become the dominant planetary force, restructuring earth system processes as well as the diversity and abundance of life. The Anthropocene calls into question the idea that nature and culture are separated. Similarly, Chalmers’ work blurs the line between natural history and art. She writes in her Artist Statement at CatherineChalmers.com, “My work is at the intersection of art, science and nature. I do extensive research for each of my long-term, multimedia projects and a direct engagement with the natural world is central to what I do.”
