Virtual Talk | Cecilia Vicuña and Hans Ulrich Obrist: On Environmental Justice
June 30, 2020

Part of Art Basel Talks Program, Lehmann Maupin presented a conversation between Hans Ulrich Obrist, Artistic Director of Serpentine Galleries in London and Cecilia Vicuña, whose artistic practice engages with critical issues of environmental justice.

This conversation connects to the Serpentine Galleries’ ‘Back to Earth’ program, an interdisciplinary project that includes work by Vicuña. Over the course of her career, Vicuña has made work that exposes the impact of climate change, most recently focusing on the destruction of the Amazon and privatization of water (particularly in Latin America).

‘Back to Earth’ is the Serpentine's multi-year project in support of over 65 artist-led environmental campaigns, which will take place on site, off-site and online throughout 2020 and beyond through exhibitions, publications, live events as well as long-term, infrastructural and policy work.
