A Conversation on Climate & Art
Friday, January 26, 2018, 6:30pm – 8pm
Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Auditorium
Sheila C. Johnson Design Center
Parsons School of Design
66 Fifth Avenue, New York City
Christiane Paul, Oliver Kellhammer, and Peggy Weil will discuss art and climate change in the context of Weil’s film 88 Cores, on view for the first time as the centerpiece of In Human Time.
How can we comprehend the inhuman scales at work in global climate change? The conversation will explore how art and digital media can enhance our understanding of time and space in the context of the environment.
Paul is the director and chief curator of the Sheila C. Johnson Design Center (SJDC) at the Parsons School of Design, a professor in the School of Media Studies at The New School, and adjunct curator of digital art at the Whitney Museum of American Art. Kellhammer is a land artist, activist, writer, and lecturer in Sustainable Systems at Parsons whose botanical interventions and public art projects have focused on a range of environmental concerns. Weil’s work has been internationally exhibited and spans genres including digital urban signboards, VR, mobile apps, and large-scale public installations. 88 Cores is the fourth in her series of ‘underlandscapes.’
The conversation will take place in the Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Auditorium at the SJDC, next to the gallery, which will remain open until the event begins.
