Over the last one hundred years, humans have drastically altered the natural environment through industrialization, intensive farming, rapid urbanization, and the development of fossil fuels.
In an era of planetary climate change, how will these transformations alter the way we live our lives? How can we understand climate change from a historical and cultural perspective? How can we imagine an alternative, more equitable future?
Let’s Talk About the Weather: Art and Ecology in a Time of Crisis brings together 17 local and international artists showcasing new works dealing with climate change and ecological disaster.
