Katy Higgins

Katy Higgins presents photographs from her series titled Empty Exhibit, an examination of zoological exhibits designed to allow people to observe animals in a facsimile of their native habitats. In Higgins’ photographs, these educational exhibits are startlingly empty of animal life, drawing attention to the artifice of these fabricated environments. Based in New York, Higgins received her MFA from Rutgers University and has exhibited her works in both photography and video at numerous venues in New York and Chicago. In September, the Empty Exhibit series will be included in Hyperreal World: Landscape as Commodity, at Florida State University Museum of Fine Arts in Tallahassee.
