Dornith Doherty: Archiving Eden

August 9, 2017–January 14, 2018
First floor

Over the decade, North Texas photographer Dornith Doherty has traveled the globe to construct a visual meditation on the planet’s botanical diversity by showcasing the work of international seed banks and sharing the pure aesthetic pleasure of seeds and their transformations into plants. This exhibition celebrates the completion of that project. At a time when some ecologists are suggesting that we are losing more than 10 animal and plant species each day, the display provides eloquent confirmation of the close relationship between botany and biophilia.
