Co-organized by Wave Hill and Lehman College Art Gallery, Eco-Urgency: Now or Never, is a collaborative exhibition that shows the varied responses artists have to the unfolding ecological crisis. This two-part exhibition opens August 28, 2021 at Wave Hill. Part two opens at Lehman College Art Gallery on December 4. 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.
