A still image from a short film showing what looks like a beach jungle on fire in three places. In reality, the image is a hanging, large-scale photograph of a beach jungle engulfed with flames. Sand and plants can be seen in front of the photograph, further adding to the illusion.

Event Description

About the Event

Since 2020, our world has been transformed by a global pandemic, advocacy for social reform, and political division. How have these extraordinary times inspired artists? Works by the 28 artists featured in New Worlds: Women to Watch 2024 explore these ideas from perspectives that shift across geographies, cultural viewpoints, and time.

Once a month, leading up to and through the opening of the exhibition in April 2024, NMWA curators host a special members-only virtual event with a group of participating artists to discuss one of the themes of the exhibition. In January’s panel discussion, artists Noémie Goudal (representing the UK), Irina Kirchuk (Argentina), Sarah Ortegon HighWalking (Wyoming), and Sophia Pompéry (Germany) describe how their creative practices intersect with issues of ecology, climate change, and sustainability.
