Climate in Crisis: Environmental Change in the Indigenous Americas

02/14/20

February 14, 2020–January 10, 2021
Brooklyn Museum
Arts of the Americas Galleries, 5th Floor

Exhibit
Climate change is having a severe impact on Indigenous communities across the Americas, but the situation has an even longer history rooted in the legacies of European colonialism. With more than sixty works spanning 2,800 years and cultures across North, Central, and South America, this installation draws upon the strength of our Arts of the Americas collection to highlight the complex worldviews of Indigenous peoples and explore how their beliefs, practices, and ways of living have been impacted by the ongoing threat of environmental destruction.
