Climate Change: Artists Respond with Baruch College

November 18, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

This panel brings together contemporary artists whose artwork contributes to a broader public understanding of the consequences of climate change for human and non-human existence, and the urgent need for action and mitigation. The seemingly overwhelming scale of the climate crisis is a recognized barrier to public participation in tackling it. Art can overcome this resistance through a myriad of methods, from educating and raising awareness to modeling problem solving or giving voice and form to intangible forces. Xavier Cortada, Anina Gerchick, Mary Mattingly and Katherine Behar have created art that is both geographically specific and universally relevant, providing entry points around which people can coalesce.

The Baruch College Task Force on Sustainability invites you to join the “Climate Change: Artists Respond” virtual speaker series on Thursday, November 18 from 4-5:30 p.m. The panel discussion is focused on public art, the environment, and climate change and is sponsored by Baruch’s Weissman College of Arts and Sciences.

Organized and moderated by Julie Reiss

Co-moderator: Katherine Behar

Panelists: Mary Mattingly, Xavier Cortada, Katherine Behar, Anina Gerchick
