Climate Lab: Sarah Cameron Sunde and 36.5/ A Durational Performance with the Sea
- Tuesday, September 6, 2022
Join us for a conversation with Guggenheim Fellowship-winning artist and director Sarah Cameron Sunde about the upcoming finale to her globe-spanning series 36.5 /A Durational Performance with the Sea. On September 14, 2022, Sunde will stand in the East River in Queens, New York City, for 12 hours, 29 minutes—a full tidal cycle—as water engulfs her body and then reveals it again. The performance will be filmed from multiple perspectives, live-streamed around the world, and edited into a durational video artwork. This will be the climax of a nine-year project whose earlier works took place in Maine, Mexico, California, the Netherlands, Bangladesh, Brazil, Kenya, and Aotearoa-New Zealand.
Author and historian Russell Shorto will talk with Sunde about the 36.5 series, the upcoming event, public art, and sea-level rise in New York City.
