Bruce Experiences: Curator’s Talk: Chain Reaction: The Photography of Patrick Nagatani

Via Zoom

Does art make a difference? The exhibition is curated by Stephanie Guyet, an independent curator and former Zvi Grunberg Resident Fellow for the Bruce Museum. In this program, we will examine the fascinating interplay of fact and fiction in the Nuclear Enchantment series, in an effort to assess how culture impacts society, in terms of art as a historical record and as incitement to social and political engagement. We will discuss artist Patrick Nagatani’s unique approach to the past, how he simultaneously employs documentary and mythology, history and its representation, in an idiosyncratic artistic activism.

Bruce Experiences programs, sponsored by Bank of America, are provided free of charge. Reservations are required.

Bruce Experiences: Finding Dragons in the Amazon with Dr. Jessica Ware

Via Zoom

Dragonflies and damselflies, representing the insect order Odonata, are among the earliest flying insects with living (extant) representatives. Getting the insects needed for phylogenetic work requires extensive global fieldwork, and I will discuss the state of dragonfly and damselfly biodiversity analyses in the Amazon region. Unraveling details of their long evolutionary history, such as egg-laying (oviposition) strategies, is impeded by unresolved phylogenetic relationships, an issue particularly prevalent in damselfly families and fossil lineages. I present the first transcriptome-based and AHE-based phylogenetic reconstructions of Odonata representing nearly all of the order’s families (except Austropetaliidae and Neopetaliidae).

Free to visitors, but with a request for those who can make a donation.
