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, building community based on truth. Climate Arts in the Pandemic: A Conversation with Gabriela Salazar and Una Chaudhuri will explore the themes of art, resilience, and community. It will include a screening of a short film about Salazar’s sculptural work, Low Relief for High Water, which was created to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. The film will be 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
