Exhibition March 20 − August 16, 2020
Alexander von Humboldt was perhaps the most important naturalist of the 19th century.

Exhibition "Alexander von Humboldt and the USA: art, nature and culture"They put American art right at the center of the conversation about Humboldt's continued influence on how we think about our relationship with the environment.

Humboldt's desire to understand the universe is his concern for climate change, his taxonomic curiosity focused on the species of flora and fauna of the New World and his belief that art is as important as science for our relationship with nature and our governance of this planet.
