Surge Exhibition Partnership: Imagining Climate Futures

Landing by Philip Govedare

Philip Govedare, UW Professor of Art and a member of our steering committee, is collaborating with Phil Levin, UW Professor of Practice and Lead Scientist with The Nature Conservancy Washington Office, to prepare a contribution to the third Surge exhibition, which will be held in the fall of 2018 at the Museum of Northwest Art in LaConner, Washington. Surge encourages artists and scientists to learn from each other and share diverse perspectives on how climate change is affecting communities in the Northwest. In conversation with Levin, Govedare plans to create 2-3 aerial landscape paintings that are inspired by environmental science and evoke the visible and invisible effects of of human activities on the planet. The paintings will go beyond realism to imagine a future that is different, and elicit questions about our role as humans in the natural world.
