In the upcoming exhibition That was then. This is now: PostNatural Nature, alcoholic rats, ribless mice, and genetically modified mosquitoes are among the specimens being presented by artist Richard Pell and the Center for PostNatural History. Explore 10,000 years of human-guided evolution in a fascinating view of items from the collections of the Natural History Museum and the Center for PostNatural History. Each object in the exhibit is simultaneously a piece of natural history and a post-natural artifact of human culture that embodies human desire, hunger, power, and fear.
Join us for a viewing of the exhibition and reflect on the profound questions raised by the interplay between culture, nature, biotechnology, art, and science in a dynamic discussion with Richard Pell, Director of the Center for PostNatural History in Pittsburgh; Matt Dean, Associate Professor of Molecular and Computational Biology at USC; and Amy Gusick, Associate Curator for Archaeology at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County.
