Reckoning with the climate crisis: a pathway through art: by The New York Review of Books

February 28, 2019

Description

The New York Review of Books is pleased to present a public conversation about the climate crisis and how we come to terms with it. The discussion is prompted by an NYR Daily essay, ‘Climate Signs,’ by American Book Award winner and City College teacher Emily Raboteau, who toured the ten sites of the citywide public art exhibition Climate Signals with a new friend, fellow City College teacher and writer Mikael Awake.

Climate Signals was a five-borough installation by artist Justin Brice Guariglia. It consisted of highway signs flashing text to draw passers-by into engaging with climate change. Climate Signals was presented by the Climate Museum in partnership with the Mayor’s Office — Climate Policy and Programs in Fall 2018.

Panelists:

Mikael Awake, author and professor at the City College of New York

Justin Brice Guariglia, Climate Signals artist

Miranda Massie, Director of the Climate Museum

Emily Raboteau, author and professor at the City College of New York

Moderated by: Lucy McKeon, Associate Editor, NYR Daily, The New York Review of Books
