Picturing Purity


Curated by Anna Helgeson

A photography/new media exhibition designed to engage the public in a nuanced conversation about environmentalism with images that call attention to purity myths in our culture and demonstrate new ways of visualizing our relationship to the planet. From the untouched female virgin, to the uninhabited pristine forest; these myths construct an untouchable other in tension with a lustful outsider.
