We Are Nature: Living in the Anthropocene

Mondays, Wednesdays-Sundays. Continues through June 30
412-622-3131

Discover more about humanity's complex relationship with the environment and add your voice to the conversation in We Are Nature—the first exhibition in North America to focus on the Anthropocene. The Anthropocene is the current geological era in which humans are making a profound impact on the geological strata. While the term itself is still being debated by geologists, the museum is embracing it as a social and cultural tool for exploring the broad sum effect humans are having on the planet. Explore the Anthropocene for yourself as an era and a concept. Wander through a “human diorama” to contemplate the impact that our everyday lives have on a complicated and fragile ecosystem.

William Henry Fox Talbot and the Promise of Photography

Mondays, Wednesdays-Sundays. Continues through Feb. 11
412-622-3131

This is the largest US exhibition of Talbot’s photography in the last 15 years, featuring more than 30 works by William Henry Fox Talbot (British, 1800–1877) and his circle. In addition, 16 of the photographs on view are recent acquisitions or promised gifts to the museum. A true “gentleman scientist” of the Victorian period, Talbot combined his knowledge of chemistry, mathematics, and optics, with his interest in art, botany, and classics to invent the paper-based photography that dominated the field for most of the 19th and 20th centuries. Due to the fragile nature of the photographs, exhibitions of Talbot’s work are rare. This represents the first time ever that any of these photographs will be on view in Pittsburgh. In 1841, Talbot patented the “calotype” process, a direct precursor to the positive and negative in darkroom photography that persists today. The calotype allowed for picture-making in low-light conditions and with shorter exposure times meaning that interiors and portraits were possible. Talbot relished this expanded subject matter, making photographs around his Lacock Abbey estate of family and friends. Eventually, he even brought his equipment abroad to make pictures in other parts of Britain and the European continent.
