Virtual Panel: How do Artists Respond to the Climate Crisis?

Featuring the i3C (Inspiring Change for Climate Crisis) Artists Group, Curator Adriana G. Prat and hosted by the Multicultural Art Center Gallery

As a satellite event to Adriana G. Prat’s exhibit Topographies of the Collective Misfortunes, join us for a live panel with i3C artists on Wednesday June 1st at 6 PM EST. i3C (Inspiring Change for Climate Crisis) is a multidisciplinary group of 17 artists from Massachusetts, New York, and Pennsylvania. Curated by artist and scientist Adriana G. Prat, the creative collective presents environmentally conscious art exhibits and associated community programming. Their diverse backgrounds and art practices contribute to their shared commitment to the topic of the climate crisis.

The event centers around artists presenting how their work represents a response to the climate crisis. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own experiences and ideas into the discussion. Breakout rooms will provide opportunities to brainstorm solutions and promote a sense of community.

About the Curator

Adriana G. Prat is an abstract painter and curator with a PhD in Biophysics. Informed by her scientific background, her paintings often allude to maps, islands, and living cells. Prat’s exhibition “Topographies of the Collective Misfortunes” is currently on view at the Multicultural Art Center through June 3, 2022. Prat started i3C with the goal of inspiring change and action for the climate crisis through art exhibitions, talks, classes, and community outreach programming. Starting as a group show at the Multicultural Art Center Gallery in 2020, the exhibition of 2D and 3D multimedia work has grown and will travel to more than 3 different art spaces over the next six months, and counting….
