Christina Seely

Christina Seely’s multifaceted practice maps our increasingly tenuous relationship to the non-human living world. Born out of more than a decade of in-field experience working alongside climate scientists at the far reaches of the planet, her work encourages new ways of sensing the self inside the realities of climate collapse. By pointing to the perceptual limits of photographic and recorded media the work spotlights our meaningful and loaded location within increasingly fragile global systemics. She has a broad international exhibition record and is featured in many collections. She is a 2023 John Simon Guggenheim Fellow and a past recipient of the Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship. Her exhibition Next of Kin: Seeing Extinction Through An Artist’s Lens at the Harvard Museum of Natural History led to an Environmental Humanities Fellowship at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland and she recently completed a master’s degree from Harvard Divinity School (2023) in line with her work. As a scholar and educator she taught at California College of the Arts from 2007-2014, and was an Assistant and Associate Professor in the Studio Art Department at Dartmouth College (Hanover, NH) between 2014-2023. She is now an independent practitioner/scholar represented by Euqinom Gallery in San Francisco, CA.
