Signe Nielsen Speaking at the Art at Water's Edge Symposium - Sunday, October 9

Facing climate change and rising sea levels, this symposium to be held at the Park Avenue Armory convenes artists, activists, and designers to engage the meeting of land with water. This afternoon activation is inspired by acclaimed director Peter Sellars’ call to “listen to the oceans,” and by director and scholar May Joseph‘s call for cosmopolitan citizenship in “fluid New York.” From the work of Indigenous water protectors who challenge extractive futures to urban planners responding to waterfront access, Art at Water’s Edge will offer an intergenerational forum for the imagination in action.

Signe will be taking part in Session 3: Where Do We Go From Here? scheduled from 4:00pm - 6:30pm. Please click through for ticket info and full symposium details.
