ART TALK - Gabriella Demczuk on Documenting Ghost Forests Across the United States

Jun 15 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM, 2021

This event is in support of Maya Lin’s Ghost Forest and is presented in collaboration with Madison Square Park Conservancy.

For Madison Square Park Conservancy’s public art commissioning program, artist Maya Lin realizes a site-specific installation that brings into focus the ravages of climate change on woodlands around the world. Ghost Forest takes the form of a towering grove of spectral cedar trees, all sourced from the region and presented in sharp contrast to the park’s lush tree line. The installation builds on Lin’s practice of addressing species loss, habitat loss, and climate change within her work and serves as a call to action to the thousands of visitors who pass through the park daily.

Additional talks and film screening will take place on 9/21, 10/19 & 11/9
