Online Opening Lecture: Devour the Land: War and American Landscape Photography since 1970
In this virtual lecture, curator Makeda Best will introduce our latest special exhibition, “Devour the Land: War and American Landscape Photography since 1970,” on view at the Harvard Art Museums from September 17, 2021 through January 16, 2022.
Devour the Land explores the unknown and often hidden consequences of militarism on habitats and well-being in the United States. Featuring approximately 160 photographs across 7 thematic groupings, the exhibition reveals the nationwide footprint of the U.S. military, the wide network of industries that support and supply its work, and the impacts of—and responses to—this activity.
