This online art exhibition features provocative pieces of art in three galleries that call attention to the human causes of the mass extinction of species occurring and the moral and ethical values we associate with other species.
This exhibition features a wide variety of artwork, including photography, tapestries, paintings, and videos.
The link takes you to the exhibition's main page. Scroll to the bottom to view each of the three individual galleries called "Ethics," "Excess," and "Extinction."
The galleries feature images and embedded videos.
Accompanying text for each gallery and each piece of art provides context and background information.
Art students could explore this exhibition and create their own artwork on a specific endangered species.
The artwork is emotion provoking and some of the images may be upsetting for students. Students can journal about or discuss their feelings and the ethical dilemmas explored in the works.
Cross-curricular connections can be made with biology classes by using this resource as an extension activity when studying animal extinction.
