Emma Lindsay

Emma Lindsay is a visual artist whose practice has focused on the representation of extinct and endangered Australian birds.

Lindsay received funding to undertake a self-organised two-month research and professional development residency at Point B Worklodge in Brooklyn, New York. Lindsay undertook research at major international natural history museums including the American Museum of Natural History, the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University and the Smithsonian Institute. The research conducted in these museum collections has extended her practice through investigation of the concept of the natural history museum as a landscape for extinction.
