What does art curatorship share with zoological practice? A lot, in fact. Join Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts for an exploration of unexpected intersections in their practices of care, collaboration, research, and exhibitionism. Sylvie Fortin, Bemis Curator-in-Residence, and Stephanie Huettner, Curator of Birds and Atlantic Puffin Species Survival Plan (SSP) Coordinator at Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium, will discuss their ever-changing work and what they have learned by collaborating with artists Richard Ibghy and Marilou Lemmens on their exhibition "Look, it’s daybreak, dear, time to sing," on view at Bemis through February 15, 2020.
