LOCAL>> Climate Change Through the Artist's Eyes – with Alonzo King

A conversation about art, beauty and humanity in the age of climate disruption

Images of dancers or sculptures don’t leap to mind with the mention of climate change.

But artists are increasingly using the carbon conundrum as a creative lens, using their mediums to design cultural moments that bring people together.

As storytellers, artists are reaching people on a deeper and more emotional level than the cerebral facts and charts often used to shape the climate narrative.

Can art reach and activate people on climate in new and compelling ways? How can art convey the joy of nature and the grief of how humans are destroying it?

Join us for a conversation about art, beauty and humanity in the age of climate disruption with celebrated choreographer Alonzo King, whose new dance is inspired by the beauty and tragedy unfolding in the Arctic. The world premier will be held in San Francisco later this year.

Also joining is senior curator Nora Lawrence, whose 2018 exhibition at New York’s Storm King Art Center, Indicators: Artists on Climate Change, was one of the first major museum exhibitions to address climate change.
