Photographer Rachel Sussman has been researching, working with biologists, and traveling all over the world to find and photograph continuously living organisms 2,000 years old and older. Sussman, who is fiscally sponsored by the Brooklyn Arts Council, is endeavoring to raise funds for an expedition to the Antarctic Peninsula to photograph 5,000-year-old moss this winter. She is hosting an Antarctic Expedition Benefit Party tonight at the fabulous Galapagos Space in DUMBO.

If you’re into Music, Trapeze, Dance Performances, free Vodka, Haircuts and free Grimaldi’s Pizza, you should venture to Galapagos tonight!
