Brooklyn Talks: Artists and Activists on Climate Grief 

Thursday, November 3, 2022

7–9 pm

Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium, 3rd Floor

Artists and activists consider the experience of climate grief, a term coined to describe the somatic effects of anxiety and mourning over ecological crisis. As part of this multidisciplinary dialogue, artist Duke Riley, whose special exhibition DEATH TO THE LIVING, Long Live Trash is currently on view, talks about creating artworks out of plastics found in New York waterways as a way of engaging with local pollution and global marine devastation. Riley is joined by Kizzy Charles-Guzman, Executive Director, NYC Mayor’s Office of Climate and Environmental Justice, and Michelle Shofet of Nocturnal Medicine, a nonprofit studio that facilitates gatherings in response to environmental trauma. Together they will discuss strategies for addressing climate change and advancing environmental justice across art, social practice, policy, and grassroots organizing.

Masks are required in the Auditorium and will be available upon arrival. 

Tickets are $16. Member tickets are $14. Not a Member? Join today! Add a copy of Duke Riley: Tides and Transgressions at checkout.
