Global Warning: Artists on Climate Change at BAM

Part of the 2009 Next Wave Festival Sat, Dec 5 at 5pm at BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music) In conjunction with Terra Nova: Sinfonia Antarctica, composer/writer DJ Spooky’s sound and visual exploration of the Antarctic, Global Warning: Artists on Climate Change brings together three artists for a conversation about the climate crisis and its emergence as a theme in the arts. DJ Spooky joins ecological designer/architect Mitchell Joachim, selected by Rolling Stone as one of "The 100 People Who Are Changing America;" and MacArthur Award recipient Julie Mehretu, known for her “singular and poetic” (The New York Times) map-like paintings that challenge traditional notions of geography and space, for an engaging discussion moderated by NPR and BBC contributor Tania Ketenjian. http://www.bam.org/view.aspx?pid=1275
