Christina Seely’s photographic work pushes the limits of the medium to investigate and translate the complexities of both built and natural global systems. An experiential examination of our understandings of time and the natural world make up the root of her research-based practice designed to help a public register and face the realities of our tenuous relationship to the planet.

 

She has a broad national and international exhibition record and is featured in many public and private collections including; The Museum of Contemporary Photography, The West Collection and The Walker Art Center. She has been an Artist in Residence at the Headlands Center for the Arts in California, and Lightwork in Syracuse, NY, a Fellow at the MacDowell Colony in New Hampshire, a participant on the Arctic Circle Program (Svalbard Territory), as well as a recipient of a year long Public Arts Commission from the city of San Francisco. She received a 2014 Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship, her first monograph Lux, was co-published in 2015 by Radius Books and the Museum of Contemporary Photography and she was a 2017 recipient of the John Gutmann Photography Fellowship. Her exhibition Next of Kin: Seeing Extinction Through An Artist’s Lens opened at the Harvard Museum of Natural History in 2017. As a research-based artist contributing to contemporary transdisciplinary conversations about the global climate crisis and the Anthropocene she received a 2020 Environmental Humanities Fellowship at University of Edinburgh in Scotland.

 

She received a BA from Carleton College, an MFA in Photography from Rhode Island School of Design, and is an Assistant Professor in the Studio Art Department at Dartmouth College in Hanover NH. She is currently represented by Euqinom Gallery in San Francisco, CA.

I create projects that investigate and translate the complexities of both built and natural global systems in order to help a public register and face the realities of our tenuous relationship to the planet.
