Focusing on several recent curatorial and artistic projects anchored in the Gulf Coast—home to some of the fastest disappearing land masses in the world—this conversation considers how art can encourage new forms of environmental awareness, and invite new thinking about culture and community. How can art shed light on urgent local issues, while also looking beyond region, nation and country to show us the way that climate connects us all? How can art inspire us to think about the very idea of environment differently, dissolving the boundaries between local and global, between center and periphery, to locate new sources of solidarity and strength?
