ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
Edward Burtynsky: Earth Observed
The NBMAA is presenting a large-scale survey featuring the work of acclaimed photographer Edward Burtynsky from November 17, 2022, through April 16, 2023, entitled Edward Burtynsky: Earth Observed. The exhibition will comprise examples from nearly every series of Burtynsky’s output from the early 1990s to today and will examine the artist’s career-long documentation of human impact on nature and the landscape through manufacturing, mining, shipbreaking, and deforestation. It will represent the first major exhibition of the artist’s work in Connecticut and one of the largest in the North East ever, and it will explore topics including climate change, sustainability, and the legacy of American landscape art.
