CLIMATE ARTS PANEL
With Peggy Weil and Oliver Kellhammer
At this January 26, 2018 panel, Christiane Paul, Oliver Kellhammer, and Peggy Weil discussed 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 vast scales at work in climate change? The conversation explored how art and digital media can help engage the public.
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.
