Curated Exhibition by Andrew S. Yang

Making Kin—Worlds Becoming

Making Kin is an online art exhibition exploring the visual dimensions of kinship in a more-than-human world. With work from 24 artists from around the world, Making Kin is in conversation with the themes—Planet, Place, Partners, Persons, Practice—that are central to the Center for Humans and Nature’s five-volume book series, Kinship: Belonging in a World of Relations. The participating artists illuminate the deep connections between humans and nature while inviting us to consider how kinship practices and ethics can expand our sense of identity, as well as deepen our care and respect for other-than-human kin.

Making Kin is part of the Center for Humans and Nature’s Kinship Project, which includes a five-volume book series, podcast, and ongoing events.

Kinship with the More-Than-Human World

In partnership with Wisconsin Public Radio’s To the Best of Our Knowledge and with support from the Kalliopeia Foundation, the Center for Humans and Nature is exploring the theme of “kinship” in a special series of radio and podcast episodes. Leading scientists, philosophers, and writers illuminate ways in which “personhood” transcends the human species and shows how kinship practices can deepen our care and respect for the more-than-human world.
