Join our Artists-in-Residence Lemon Guo and Banyi Huang for “Inundation, Undulation, Modulation”. This event consists of an afternoon of performances, screenings, and site-specific projects. It reflects on aspects of climate change, including rising tides, toxic waste, and its various effects on the body, as well as the fraught history of Governor’s Island as a colonial defense system for the United States. Taking advantage of both indoor and outdoor locations, performances will move in and outside the building, mirroring the mass migration and displacement of bodies as decisive results of colonial expansion and environmental change.
Discover public national and local events related to learning more about climate change and taking action – whether online, in the streets, or in the auditorium. The more we know, the more effective we will be. And, the more we participate, the more we will build a community of people working for the welfare of our children and our grandchildren.
