Rachel Sussman makes her first stop in Minnesota at this opening reception for her exhibit of photographs from around the world. The project features photos of living organisms 2,000 years old or older, and combines biology and art to explore nature, and hits on themes of time, aging, climate change and the relationship between humans and the natural world. The exhibit runs through April 15, and even if you miss the opening reception or Sussman’s artist talk on Feb. 22, check this out before it leaves town. Friday, February 21st opening, 6 PM. Free. —Hank Stacks
