Photography Lecture Series
Edward Morris and his collaborator Susannah Sayler (Sayler/Morris) work with photography, video, writing and installation. Of primary concern are contemporary efforts to develop ecological consciousness and the possibilities for art within a social activist practice. In 2006 they co-founded The Canary Project - a collaborative that produces art and media that deepen public understanding of ecological issues such as climate change, extinction, food systems and water resources. They have been awarded the David Brower Center’s Art / Act Award, the Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship, the Loeb Fellowship at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design. Their work has been exhibited broadly in the United States and abroad at both science and art museums, including the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, The North Carolina Museum of Art, the Kunsthal in Rotterdam, the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago, the Walker Center for the Arts, etc. They are currently teaching in the Transmedia Department at Syracuse University, where they co-founded The Canary Lab. Their archives are collected by the Nevada Museum of Art / Reno, Center for Art and Environment.
Free and open to the public.
