Join Katie A. Pfohl, Ph.D., Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA) and EXPO CHGO’s Environmental Curator, for a tour of select artworks from the digital exposition’s Environmental Thematic. Pfohl completed her Ph.D. in art history at Harvard University in 2014, and has held positions at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Her recent major group exhibitions at NOMA include Mending the Sky, focusing on artists responding to a world in distress and Ear to the Ground, examining environmental activism in contemporary art. EXPO CHGO ONLINE’s Environmental Thematic invites participating galleries to present an artwork that contributes to a broad rethinking of the environment and is conceptually linked to the EXPO CHICAGO’s recent symposium Alternate Assembly: Environmental Impact in the Era of Pandemic.
