A drawing I made in collaboration with artist Jenny Kendler Lemurs Against Deforestation is included in the exhibition It's Not Easy at Exit Art.
The photographs, texts, drawings, graphics and other works in It’s Not Easy are printed on 8½” x 11” recycled paper, giving equal – and sustainable(ish) – attention to each work. With over 300 responses, It’s Not Easy explores the multiplicity of cultural, environmental and political meanings of GREEN.
It’s Not Easy is the second exhibition of SEA (Social Environmental Aesthetics), a major new exhibition program and archive initiative in Exit Underground that presents social and environmental issues and the way artists respond to them. SEA will occupy a permanent space in Exit Underground. The SEA Archive will be a permanent archive of information, images and videos that will be a searchable database for scholars and researchers. Central to the mission of SEA is to provide a vehicle through which the public can be made aware of this kind of work, to provide a forum for collaboration between artists and ecologists and to inspire them to continue the tradition of work that SEA presents.
The exhibition runs through August 29th in NYC.
