Jodie Lyn-Kee-Chow’s “Am I Pretty Now?” by Jósa Goodlife

REPOPULATIONS: New Horizons is the second iteration of the Climate Week-inspired exhibition series REPOPULATIONS which focuses on environmentally-themed subjects and takes place yearly during the summer and early fall months. Curated by Daniela Holban, this exhibition is part of the larger NOoSPHERE Arts’ WE ARE NATURE Series: art events that make full use of the unique stage setting of the Kingsland Wildflowers bird sanctuary at Broadway Stages in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, to engage a diverse audience in environmental efforts through art.

Last Frontier NYC

REPOPULATIONS: New Horizons brings together a group of contemporary artists to reflect and discuss environmentally-focused themes, the state of the world today, and new conceptions of the future. The exhibition will focus on female-identifying and non-binary artists, in an attempt to construct visions of the power of creation + destruction and metaphorically reclaim sacred spaces for the priestess archetype. This temporary environment will be used for reflection, meditation, and celebration of nature, humanity, and inspiration, a place meant to contemplate how we will build a new world after the pandemic: the epoch-defining event of our time. The exhibition will present site-specific installations, immersive sound experiences, video, sculpture, and 2D works and will occupy Last Frontier NYC and parts of the Kingsland Wildflowers Rooftops.
