Museo Nazionale della Scienza e della Tecnologia Leonardo da Vinci

This exhibition discovers how genes, information, and heredity play important roles in many areas of our lives, and how DNA represents a fundamental resource for human being and the environment. Due of its artistic approach to scientific issues, Humanae has become part of the museum’s permanent collection.

Beyond the artistic and sociological recognition enjoyed by Humanae, the project also proves to be a magnificent tool for genetic study

About Humanae

Humanae is a photographic work in progress by artist Angélica Dass. Currently composed of almost 4,000 portraits from volunteers all around the globe, Humanæ pursues to document humanity’s true colors and bring up a critical reflection on the white, red, black and yellow false labels associated with race. The project does not select participants and there is no date set for its completion.  It is a journey of open-ended possibilities that enriches the way we see ourselves, beyond faces and colors. Nowadays, the artist has been doing portraits in 36 different cities and 20 different countries.
