Assembly features artworks made by Syracuse University faculty and recent alumni that contribute to emergent forms of ecological understanding. By placing these works in dialogue with objects from the Museum’s collection, the installation considers a broad cultural evolution from an environmentalism of the sublime to an ecology of intimacy.

This exhibition is curated by Sayler/Morris (Susannah Sayler and Edward Morris, Co-Directors of The Canary Lab at Syracuse University), with Mike Goode (William P. Tolley Distinguished Professor in the Humanities) and Melissa Yuen (interim chief curator), and assisted by Jeffrey Adams (Ph.D. Student in English), Jeanelle Cho ‘24 (Architecture and Art History), and Abi Greenfield ‘25 (History and Political Philosophy).
