Lars Jan, Isaac Julien and John Paul Rathbone
This discussion will address the effects of climate change, droughts and floods and how the current situation is being addressed inside and outside of the art community worldwide. How do artists reflect on global warming and shrinking water resources in their work? To what extent do artists contribute to the problem and/or discourse? What can artists do to confront the issues of global warming, excess or absence of water and growing public health concerns?
Moderator: John Paul Rathbone, Latin America Editor, Financial Times, Miami.
Access: Open to the public and free of charge.
