About Carnegie Nexus
Carnegie Nexus is an initiative that taps the amazing material and intellectual assets of the four Carnegie Museums as they collaborate with other big thinkers to present insightful, risk-taking programming on ideas that impact us all. This collaborative initiative reaches across the arts and sciences to design experiences that animate pressing issues of our time and instigate new ways to examine our world through live performance, the visual and literary arts, and thoughtful conversation.
Strange Times: Earth in the Age of the Human, a 12-part event series from January 11–Apirl 20, 2017, was the inaugural Carnegie Nexus program series. Actors, writers, scientists, and musicians welcomed us to the age of the Anthropocene, a new geological time in which human influence on the environment is so profound it will leave its legacy in the very rock strata of the earth. Through live performance, theater, film, and conversation, they led us in exploring our strange times and even stranger future by reimagining what we mean by nature, technology—and, ultimately, being human. Revisit Strange Times.
