ven. 5 octobre à 23:00
Sustainable Futures: Exhibition + Artist Talks | October 5th 5-8 pm Artists: Yasmeen Abdallah, Charisse Foo, Zoey Hart, Sohee Koo, Mangda Sengvanhpheng, and Veronika Szkudlarek This exhibition explores the concept of sustainable futures. What does a sustainable future look like? In NYC? Around the world? As populations grow, sea levels rise, and food systems are modified, what role will sustainability and design play? In envisioning what a sustainable future is, it’s possible to imagine successful, as well as dystopian outcomes. The opening will feature two artist talks.
