Queens Museum:  A Call for Climate Change

Date

October 29, 2018

Location

Queens Museum

Details

Please join us as we celebrate UN Day with a special program with UNA-USA and Climate Museum calling for climate action and paths to achieving the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the Paris Agreement. This event will include a visit to the public art installation Climate Signals at the Unisphere in Flushing Meadows Corona Park with the artist Justin Brice Guariglia, followed by a panel discussion with sustainability agents from the city, state and UN level and the director of Climate Museum on how to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement.

The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which were adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 2015 call upon all nations to work toward a better future for all people. A habitable earth underlies all the goals. The United Nations called world leaders together to address global warming starting at the Rio Earth Summit in 1992. After a series of meetings held around the world, the Paris Agreement to limit the increase in global temperature by reducing greenhouse gas emissions was signed by 195 countries in December 2015.

Gaud Pratt Sessions 16

WE ARE THE ASTEROID

Justin Brice Guariglia, Timothy Morton & Ariane Harrison

Date

November 14, 2019

Location

Pratt Institute, Higgins Hall 

Details

The Pratt Sessions are a new format of lecture—organized by the GAUD Chair and the Dean as part of the School of Architecture’s lecture series—aiming to encourage student participation in a discussion-oriented format. Seen as a "distributed symposium," each session brings together two participants; one regionally based and one non-regionally based. Participants will frame their work (or a portion of it) around a disciplinary subject or provocation in short, non-standard lecture presentations.

Pratt Sessions explores and examines how "mediums" can be defined, re-defined, and understood within the realm of architectural design (subject one: Architectural Mediums) or how "contexts" can be defined, re-defined, and understood within the realm of architectural design (subject two: Architectural Contexts).

Reckoning with Climate Crisis: A Pathway Through Art

Justin Brice Guariglia, Panelist

The New York Review of Books 

Details

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.

Join us for a special panel discussion with Emily, Mik, Justin, and our director Miranda Massie, moderated by NYRB Associate Editor Lucy McKeon.

The State(s) We're In: A New Age of Transatlantic Relations - Climate Change and Activism

Justin Brice Guariglia, Panelist

Date

October 29, 2018

Location

Deutsches Haus at NYU

Details

Deutsches Haus at NYU presents a conversation on "Climate Change and Activism" between Miranda Massie, the founder of the U.S.'s first museum on climate change; the artists Peggy Weil and Justin Brice Guariglia; and Elke Weber, Professor of Psychology and Public Affairs at Princeton University.

 

About the panel:

After decades of inaction, the effects of climate change and extreme weather surround us regardless of where we live. There is the distinct sensation confirmed by recent studies that the time to act on climate change is running out. This panel discussion will focus not only on the intersection of climate change and activism, but also on that of science and art. What role does and can the museum play as a location of cultural, political, and social change? Can a museum with its intellectual but also emotional appeal, convince visitors to be better advocates for the climate? How can one move visitors of such a museum to take the lessons learned and apply them to the reality at hand?

This discussion is part of "The State(s) We're In: A New Age of Transatlantic Relations," a series of six talks presented by Deutsches Haus at NYU that address an array of important topics that are currently intensely debated in both Germany and the United States, and are of political and sociopolitical relevance in both countries: threats to democracy; economic inequality and populism; migration and art; civil society and political engagement; climate change and activism; and educational policy and academic freedom.

Text from Art Newspaper:

 

In the second episode of our summer season of curated podcasts, we look back on three interviews, from 2018 and earlier this year, focusing on climate change and the anthropocene. Olafur Eliasson, whose retrospective at Tate Modern has just opened, talks about his project Ice Watch and his climate activism, and another artist, Justin Brice Guariglia, argues that responding to the climate crisis is the moral imperative of our age. Finally, Anna Somers Cocks, the founder of The Art Newspaper, discusses the grave threat posed by rising sea levels to heritage in Europe and particularly around the Mediterranean.
