Mark Dion

American , 1961 -

His practice investigates museumology, scientific history and methodology, taxonomy, environmental studies, even taxidermy. His exploration of museum practice and installation methodology can often blur the line between works of art and natural history museum installations. Dion’s work has touched on such timely and critical issues as environmental politics and public policy, the philosophy and ethics of collecting, diversity within museum collections, and the mediated understanding of nature through the lens of dominant ideologies.
