Margaret Mee: Portraits of Plants is informed by the Plant Humanities Initiative at Dumbarton Oaks that seeks to explore the deep influence of plants on human cultures. We rely on plants for our most fundamental needs, yet most of the time we remain oblivious to their fascinating histories. At a time of rapid climate change and habitat loss, attending to the diverse roles that plants play in our environment is more important than ever. The stunning works by the artists in the exhibition, straddling the boundary between art and science, refresh our attention and make an urgent call to our care.
