Visit this pop-up exhibition of student, faculty, and alumni work reflecting on the threat of climate change in our lives.
Since its launch in the spring of 2016, Beyond The Polar Bear, a collaboration between The New School and 350.org has captured the imagination of over eighty artists; students, faculty members and alumni from The New School and Parsons School of Design. Of the 142 works submitted, 80 visual expressions are assembled, comprised of gifs, video, memes, diptychs and single images dedicated to interpret the issue of climate change from an intimate perspective. The projected exhibition of works and brief summary of the project will be shared by coordinator and Parsons' Illustration Assistant Professor, Wendy Popp.
