RISD Photo Gary Metz Lecture Series - Christina Seely
Christina Seely is an artist whose photographic practice stretches into the fields of science, design, and architecture and culminates in a range of visual and collaborative translations. Her expedition-based practice explores global systems, both built and natural, and finds its home in the conversation between the photographic image and our contemporary relationship with the planet. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and is featured in many public and private collections including; The Museum of Contemporary Photography, The West Collection and The Walker Art Center. She has been an Artist in Residence at Lightwork and the Headlands Center for the Arts, a Fellow at the MacDowell Colony, a participant on the Arctic Circle Program, and a recipient of a year long Public Arts Commission from the city of San Francisco. She received a 2014 Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship and her first monograph Lux, was co-published in 2015 by Radius Books and the Museum of Contemporary Photography and her exhibition Next of Kin: Seeing Extinction Through An Artist’s Lens opened at the Harvard Museum of Natural History in December 2016. She received a BA from Carleton College, an MFA in Photography from Rhode Island School of Design, and is an Assistant Professor in the Studio Art Department at Dartmouth College in Hanover NH.
