Join artist Lucy Orta and climate scientist Dr. Peter Gleick for a virtual conversation about water scarcity, a global issue exacerbated by climate change and other factors, as well as possible solutions for distribution, consumption, and conservation. Since 2005, Lucy Orta has worked in partnership with Jorge Orta, and the France-based artist duo has worked closely with researchers and scientists to create sculptures and installations that examine water and food security concerns, exploring speculative futures that might include a nomadic way of life. Dr. Gleick is a leading scientist, innovator, and communicator on global water and climate issues. His work has redefined water from the realm of engineers to the world of sustainability, human rights, and integrated thinking. This conversation, moderated by Curator of Visual Arts Eileen Jeng Lynch, is held in conjunction with the exhibition Water Scarcity: Perpetual Thirst, featuring projects by artists Tahir Carl Karmali, Cannupa Hanska Luger, and Lucy + Jorge Orta, that raise awareness about the issue of accessing clean water resources.
