Si Jie Loo, Artist in Residence Alumna, First New York City Show

NEW YORK - A group exhibition comprised of art and design works by Anne Katrine Senstad, Si Jie Loo, Jamie Martinez, and Studio Roosegaarde will be on view starting June 1st, 2019. Society is faced with climate change, pollution, rising sea levels, and massive ecologically driven migration. Many sustainable lifestyle theories advise people to “buy green,” invest in a “clean” car or only eat organic food. But is it wise to rely on consumerism to provide a solution to the very problems it has helped create? In this interdisciplinary exhibition, artists and designers think beyond “eco” art made from recycled materials or projects that simply paint an apocalyptic scene in order to address the urgent and ongoing ecological challenges the planet is faced with. The exhibition will be on view from June 1st to June 11th every day from 11am to 6pm at 191 Henry Street, New York, NY. An opening reception will be held on Saturday, June 1st from 3pm to 6pm.
