UnNatural History will be exhibited in a solo exhibit at the Balwin Photographic Gallery in Murfreesboro, Tennessee on October 17–December 10.
Nineteen History Portraits will be displayed for the first time. History Portraits display the taxidermied animal portrait in larger-than-life scale and gazing directly at the viewer. They seek to raise the status of the animal, much in the same way that historical portrait paintings of the aristocracy are displayed within the museum. These photographs ask the viewer to confront the animal’s history as a living being and their subsequent treatment in death.
Diane will be presenting a lecture at MTSU on October 13.
