Climate Arts in the Pandemic

Climate Arts in the Pandemic

The Climate Museum of New York invites you for a film screening of: CLIMATE ARTS IN THE PANDEMIC: A CONVERSATION WITH GABRIELA SALAZAR AND UNA CHAUDHURI

Last March, the Climate Museum team was eagerly anticipating the presentation of a sculptural installation and one-day participatory performance in Washington Square Park by the remarkable artist Gabriela Salazar—a work entitled Low Relief for High Water—to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day in April 2020.

We now invite you to a program dedicated to this work in suspension—and in progress.

Art about the climate crisis has gathered freight in the time of COVID-19. Personal and community resilience are more important than ever, and climate arts can connect our distant existential concerns to our closest shared values. Climate arts build community based on truth.

Join us on Friday, March 26 from 1-2pm EST to explore these themes with the screening of a short film about Salazar’s work, followed by an interactive conversation moderated by Climate Museum director Miranda Massie. The discussion will include:

  • Gabriela Salazar, Artist
  • Una Chaudhuri, Climate arts expert; NYU Professor of English, Drama, and Environmental Studies; and Director of the Center for Experimental Humanities

  • Micah Fink, Filmmaker and Professor of Social Documentary at the School of Visual Arts

  • Anais Reyes, Exhibitions Associate at the Climate Museum

RSVP here.
