Cabinet magazine and the Aldrich Museum are pleased to present "Fair for Knowledge: American Fauna," a program devised to accompany "united states," the suite of exhibitions currently on view at the Aldrich Museum. "American Fauna," the fourth installment of Cabinet's ongoing series of "fairs for knowledge," invites visitors to engage in brief one-on-one conversations with experts about one particular animal found in the United States. The experts (and their animals) include:
David Brooks (tarpon)
D. Graham Burnett (dolphin)
Victor DeMasi (monarch butterfly)
Michael Klemens (beaver)
Sina Najafi (NASA chimpanzees)
Hanna Rose Shell (bison)
Julie Victoria (bald eagle)
Adrian Young (the American man)
ABOUT THE SERIES
Designed to take learning out of the classroom and into unexpected venues, Cabinet's "fairs for knowledge" aim to create bridges between specialists and the general public by encouraging an informal, social, and open mode of learning. Sites for former installments of the series have included a flea market, a restaurant, and a New York City sidewalk.
