Event Description

About the Event

What role does the art world play in tackling the urgent climate crisis? Galleries, art fairs, museums, collectors, artists, and advocacy groups are increasingly focused on more sustainable practices to help reduce the sector’s environmental impacts. Join us for an exciting transcontinental dialogue between art industry advocates in the U.K. and U.S. who are supporting environmental justice and sustainability in the art world.

Laura Lupton, co-founder of U.S.-based initiatives Galleries Commit and Artists Commit, will moderate a virtual roundtable with Kate MacGarry, founding gallerist of U.K.- based Gallery Climate Coalition; British new media artist and co-founder of Art in Flux Aphra Shemza; Lucia Pietroiusti, Founder of General Ecology at Serpentine Galleries, London; and Carol Rashawnna Williams, Seattle-based artist and founder of the BIPOC Sustainable Tiny Art House Community.

Presented in partnership with the UK Friends of NMWA.
