Helen Mayer Harrison & Newton Harrison, Global Warming

Reception: Saturday, January 10, 6 - 8 PM

The Feldman Gallery will present Greenhouse Britain, an installation that addresses Global Warming by Helen Mayer Harrison and Newton Harrison and the Harrison Studio & Associates (Britain). The work proposes nothing less than an alternate narrative about how people might withdraw as waters rise, what new forms of settlement might look like and what properties or content a new cultural landscape might have in response to the Global Warming phenomenon. It also demonstrates how a city at risk might be defended.

Other Global Warming works from 1974 to the present will be exhibited.

The Harrison team has collaborated since 1971. Their proposals have influenced long-term policy planning and are internationally recognized for producing visionary works grounded in the natural sciences that argue for beneficial new forms in the cultural landscape. Newton Harrison and Helen Mayer Harrison, both Professors Emeriti from the University of California San Diego, have exhibited at the Feldman Gallery since 1974.
