November 20 – January 15, 2016

The People’s Museum of Revisionist Natural Itstory (PMRNI) is a national leader in revising dominant scientific and cultural narratives. It unveils its groundbreaking work in a temporary exhibition housed within the halls of SPACES, a peer organization that is equally devoted to challenging the status quo.

Various exhibits in the perspective-changing PMRNI take us on a magnificent journey through time and space that concludes with an ethic of questioning we ignore at our own peril. Powerful storytelling, exceptional objects, extinct species, multimedia stations, and a feminist planetarium will enable visitors to participate in a collaborative effort seeking narrative justice within the realm of natural history.
