Like the Waters, We Rise: A Visual History of Climate Justice


Exhibition Opening: Thursday, February 20, 2020, 6:30-9pm
Exhibition Dates: February 20 – May 3rd, 2020

Join us for Like the Waters We Rise: Climate Justice in Print, a two-part exhibition that tells a story of our contemporary climate justice movement through printed works, both past and present.

A Visual History of Climate Justice, hosted at the Interference Archive, includes a collection of archival prints documenting the historical struggles that gave birth to the current climate justice movement. These materials—from the anti-nuclear movement, Indigenous sovereignty movement, Black liberation struggles, the farmworker justice movement, and more—illustrate that the climate movement is made of many movements and one that encompasses many terrains of struggle.

Climate Justice in Print: Katrina to Now, currently on view at the Nathan Cummings Foundation through April 17th, contains print based work from 2005-present and illustrates the climate justice movement beginning the year that Hurricane Katrina crashed onto the shores of the Gulf Coast.

Artists have long been at the heart of the climate justice movement, finding bold, inspiring ways to help uplift struggles, revealing connections between climate and intersecting issues, building public support, and painting a picture of the world we are working to create. Like the Waters, We Rise underscores the role of art in shaping and documenting our actions toward a more just future.
