    Join Melissa Milgrom as she presents from her book Still Life: Adventures in Taxidermy” wherein she dutifully tracks taxidermy from its 19th-century heyday (the beneficiary of a natural history boom), to its nadir as a reviled predilection in the age of PETA and conservation. "By capturing the jizz of the taxidermic world, Milgrom has pulled back the curtain on a surprising and intense culture within which meat and animals — both dead and living — are very real." --Max Watman, New York Times

    Including conversations with the taxidermist responsible for some of the Dead or Alive artist Damien Hirst’s most famous taxidermies work, Milgrom will discuss taxidermy as it related to artwork, contemporary conservation, and presentation.
