ReflectSpace Exhibit Focuses on Climate Change

First published in the March 26 print issue of the Glendale News Press.

Glendale Library, Arts and Culture, and ReflectSpace Gallery will present “As the Earth Wanes: Considering Climate Change,” an exhibition designed to reflect on the effects of global warming and climate change on the planet.
To create greater awareness about climate change and generate critical conversations toward a greener and more sustainable future, ReflectSpace brings together the work of several artists to shed light on the current state of the planet.
Artist Luciana Abait contributes a large-scale conceptual installation reflecting on the fragility and vulnerability of the world. Argentinian-born and Los Angeles-based, Abait is a multimedia artist whose works address climate change and environmental fragility and their impacts on immigration in particular. Abait’s artwork has been widely exhibited in the United States, Europe, Latin America and Asia.
Ann Johannsson presents photographs from across the globe addressing causes, effects, and impacts of climate change. Born in Göteborg, Sweden, Johansson is an award-winning documentary photographer focusing on global climate change’s causes, effects and impacts. Johansson’s goal is to make all aspects of climate change more relatable on a personal level. Topics and locations chosen for her work are driven by scientific data.
Artist Elkpen, in a special collaboration with the city of Glendale Public Works Department, contributes drawings and posters from “Coexisting: Glendale Tree Stories.” This public story-sharing project aims to elevate, celebrate and archive Glendale residents’ shared histories and relationships to urban forests. Elkpen’s project is made possible with support from California Humanities.
Elkpen is a Los Angeles-based street artist whose work focuses on neighborhoods, natural history, science, carbon, trash and the future. Her drawings, signs and murals have been shown and installed in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Canada and Mexico. 
“As the Earth Wanes” runs through May 21, and is open to the public at the Glendale Central Library, 222 E. Harvard St., Glendale, during regular library hours.
