A Virtual Gallery Exhibition on Community Responses to Climate Change
Opening and Virtual Curatorial Talk
February 27th, 4pm PST
Alaska is warming twice as fast as the rest of the world, and climate change impacts range from melting permafrost releasing methane and carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, infrastructure eroding into the ocean, compromised survival of animal species, and changing subsistence patterns affecting food security. Changes in Alaska’s landscape have a global impact. Why We Won’t Just Leave: What Alaska is Telling the World About Climate Change is a virtual exhibition curated by Lindsay Carron and presented by Social and Public Art Resource Center (SPARC) that highlights the responses of Alaskans to their rapidly changing environment. This exhibition delivers messages that are key for us all if we are to reverse climate catastrophe and cultivate a healthy, vibrant future for generations to come. From activists delivering testimonies in D.C. and artists revealing truth with beauty, to scientists studying methane released from melting permafrost, Alaska has a message for the world.
Why We Won’t Just Leave features portraits, paintings, photography, stories, and video profiles of 20 artists, activists, researchers and community organizers responding to climate change in Alaska. Join us for a virtual gallery opening and curatorial talk by Lindsay Carron on Saturday, February 27th, 2021 at 4:00 PM PST.
RSVP online at www.SPARCinLA.org/why-we-wont/ today.
On View: February 27th to April 10th.
