Culture for Climate. This exhibition reflects on our contested past, turbulent present and unpredictable future, examining how individual and collective voices can be heard in an uncertain world. A collaboration across five curatorial departments--Architecture and Design, Education and Public Practice, Media Arts, Painting and Sculpture, and Photography.
The title of this group exhibition is a phrase drawn from American novelist and social critic James Baldwin's 1963 essay "The Creative Process," parsing the role of artists in turbulent times. Featuring works by Andrea Bowers, Hans Haacke, Emily Jacir, Arthur Jafa and Glenn Ligon, among others, the exhibition aims to consider how artists inform our understanding of urgent political issues.
