ReGeneration, a new exhibition exploring the relationship between sustainability and cultural vitality, opens October 27 at the New York Hall of Science (NYSCI). The exhibition includes interactive works by 10 artists that inspire visitors to think about the notion of cultural sustainability through collaborative engagement and futuristic visions built upon the history and traditions of New York’s diverse neighborhoods. The exhibition runs through January 13, 2013.
Despite the near ubiquity of the term “sustainability,” there remains significant ambiguity about everything from the actual meaning of the term to overarching solutions to the challenges we face as a community. Technology and behavioral changes including energy production, agriculture, recycling and pollution reduction are all on the table as we work to understand and address the challenge of sustainability.
The artists in ReGeneration are Scott Kildall, Shih Chieh Huang, Ricardo Miranda Zuniga, Biomodd, Futurefarmers, The Living + Soft Lab, Zach Lieberman, Nick Yulman, Carl Skelton, Marisa Jahn & Stephanie Rothenberg. Curated by Steve Dietz and Amanda Parkes
