Christopher Tennant, Vineland, 2022, now on display at the Suffolk County Vanderbilt Museum.

FEATURED

Christopher Tennant Related Searches
Through June 30
On Saturday, April 23, the Suffolk County Vanderbilt Museum debuts Related Searches, the first solo museum exhibition by New York artist Christopher Tennant. Tennant’s artwork, a mix of avian and aquatic dioramas and vitrines, handmade lamps, and collected specimens, reimagines natural history as an extension of commodity culture and the decorative arts. His brilliantly illuminated cases combine antique taxidermy with discarded consumer products to provide a stark visual representation of the beauty and terror of an ecology altered by human industry and the algorithmic marketplace.
Where: Vanderbilt Museum, 180 Little Neck Road, Centerport
Related Searches is the inaugural exhibition in the Vanderbilt Museum’s newly launched contemporary art program and runs through June 30.
