Art and climate: On the water front

What happens when art is used as an immersive learning tool to catalyse mitigation efforts for climate-induced sea-level rise?

Join interdisciplinary visual performance artist Sarah Cameron Sunde as she takes us on a visual journey to communities around the world that have experienced what it feels like to be engulfed by the ocean, and why the inclusion of artists in dialogues about environmental policy is so important.

Guggenheim Fellow Sarah Cameron Sunde is a New York based interdisciplinary artist and director working at the intersection of performance, video, conceptual, and public art. She investigates scale and duration in relation to the human body, environmental crisis and deep time.

Her work is part of an emerging field of art that is made on, in and with bodies of water in response to ecological change. It has been created, performed, and exhibited internationally in Mexico, the Netherlands, Bangladesh, Brazil, Kenya, Aotearoa-New Zealand, China, the UAE, and Norway, as well as across the U.S. with support from partners across the globe and institutions and organizations such as the NEA, MAP Fund, New York State Council on the Arts, Princess Grace Foundation, Arts Brookfield, The Climate Museum, and Amsterdam Fonds voor de Kunst.
