Beyond Sight: Eco Urgency

November 4 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

Free

“Beyond Sight” is an ongoing series of virtual conversations between exhibiting artists and the curatorial team at Wave Hill that provides an opportunity to learn more about an artist’s creative process and the themes within their work through non-visual ways of experiencing art.

Designed for visually impaired, blind and sighted guests, “Beyond Sight: Eco Urgency” combines verbal descriptions and interpretation of select works currently on view in Glyndor Gallery. Organized by Curatorial Assistant Jesse Bandler Firestone, attendees can expect to learn about different artworks in the exhibition and hear directly from the artists about their process and thinking. Participating artists for Beyond Sight: Eco Urgency include Nicky Enright and Lionel Cruet. Attendees will explore visual details of exhibited works through verbal descriptions and can take part in a conversation to deepen their engagement with the themes explored in Eco Urgency: Now or Never.

Registration required, here or by calling 718.549.3200 x213. When you register, you will receive the Zoom details in advance of the event. If you have any questions about this program or registration, please contact us at visualarts@wavehill.org or by calling the number and extension provided above.

 

About the exhibition:
Climate change, pollution, competition for natural resources and food insecurity threaten to overwhelm our planet and make earth uninhabitable. To encourage public engagement and deepen awareness of these issues, the artists in Eco-Urgency: Now or Never rely on research, critical analysis, observation and direct action that manifest as objects, videos, performances and community organizing. There are no easy answers, yet Eco-Urgency distills the current moment so that it can be approached, understood and acted on, provoking conversation and shared ideas.
