Wave Hill and Lehman College Art Gallery co-present Eco-Urgency: Artists Make the Case. This exhibition focuses on critical issues affecting the biodiversity of ecosystems—locally in the Bronx and globally—and areas of conflict or geopolitical borders. It also showcases artists working as citizen scientists and those who work with biologists, naturalists and activists. Rooted in respecting the earth and its vulnerabilities, the exhibition addresses the need to re-examine relationships with nature and acknowledges the systems that contribute to the loss of species and habitat. The exhibiting artists draw on critical analysis, observation and research to encourage public engagement and deepen public awareness of how the current ecological crisis has become a global emergency.

Participating artists include: Rachel Frank, Susan Rowe Harrison, Richard Ibghy & Marilou Lemmens, Courtney Mattison, Alison Moritsugu, Alexis Rockman, Francesco Simeti, Candace Thompson, Natalie Collette Wood, Sasha Wortzel, and additional artists under consideration.

During the summer of 2020, Wave Hill presented a series of nine virtual programs to introduce the themes within the exhibition. Learn more about these programs.

This exhibition will be on view at Lehman College Art Gallery Dec 4 2021–March 26, 2022.

Eco-Urgency: Artists Make the Case at Wave Hill follows the related 2018 exhibitions Avifauna: Birds and Habitat and Ecological Consciousness: Artist as Instigator, and the 2017 exhibition Jackie Brookner: Of Nature.
