Maya Lin and Elizabeth Kolbert

In Conversation

About the Event

In conjunction with Climate Week NYC, Maya Lin discusses the intersection of environmentalism and activism in her multifaceted artistic practice with Elizabeth Kolbert, New Yorker environmental writer and author of The Sixth Extinction.

For Madison Square Park Conservancy’s public art commissioning program, 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.
