    Opening Reception: Thu, June 8, 7pm, everyone welcome.
    Tara Nicholson incorporates large-scale photography to document, question and visualize the reality and processes surrounding scientific work currently taking place in remote and often disputed territories. In 2015, Nicholson travelled to Western Greenland to produce a new body of work exploring climate change research, based at the University of Copenhagen Arctic Station. In 2016, she travelled to Inuvik to record and study alongside climate scientists in Canada’s north. Nicholson’s work reveals the aesthetic of taxonomies – the processes of collection and classification that develop scientific data, helping us understand what is occurring in our changing environment.
