Beginning Friday, May 5, 2017 the traveling exhibit Humanae – which explores human identity and race through a series of self-portraits from around the world – will be on display at The Health Museum. The photographic taxonomy by Brazilian artist and internationally renowned TED Talk speaker Angelica Dass challenges visitors to rethink how they see race and think about skin color through a series of photos that label human subjects with their corresponding color in the industrial palette, Pantone.
Humanae is a work in progress with more than 3,000 people in 13 countries photographed and catalogued by Dass as part of this exhibit. Over 200 individual portraits personally curated by Dass will be on display from May 5th through September 5th, 2017 at The Health Museum-located at 1515 Hermann Drive, from 9 a.m.- 5 p.m. Monday-Saturday, 9 a.m.- 7 p.m. on Thursdays, and 12 p.m.- 7p.m. on Sundays. The Humanae exhibit is included in the regular ticket price for admission: $8 for children 3-12, $8 for seniors 65+, $10 for adults, and free for families on Thursdays.
