Art and Activism: Jenny Kendler in conversation with Elizabeth Corr, NRDC

Wednesday, Mar. 17, 2021    7–9pm

Jenny Kendler is a Chicago-based artist, activist, and naturalist whose work “re-stories” the relationship between humans and the natural world. Her various projects address issues of ecological loss, climate change, and the threat of extinction. Kendler was also the first artist-in-residence at the NRDC (National Resources Defense Council), where art and activism come together to confront some of the most pressing issues of our day.

Join Kendler in conversation with Elizabeth Corr (Manager of Art Partnerships, NRDC) and Steven L. Bridges (Associate Curator, MSU Broad) to explore how Kendler’s work animates science, advocacy, and environmental issues. Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in the conversation and learn about ways they can also support environmental justice and ecological preservation in their own communities. The solo exhibition, Jenny Kendler: The Long Goodbye, is on view January 15 – June 27, 2021, at the MSU Broad.
