Climate Empathy Project—Miami 

When: June 5-29 2019
Hughen/Starkweather, the team of Amanda Hughen and Jennifer Starkweather, has fused environmental activism with conceptual art methodology for thirteen years. Their latest work is Climate Empathy Project—Miami, abstract mixed-media works telling the story of a unnamed survivor of 2017’s Category 5 Hurricane Irma, the most powerful storm to hit the continental US since Katrina in 2005, and aptly nicknamed Irmageddon. Hughen and Starkweather recontextualize and duplicate the documentary artifacts — maps, photographs, and excerpted interviews — using Local Language’s digital media, and adding drawing, painting and staining to humanize the raw data and make it visually compelling. The large fabric collage works of the Trajectory series, unframed, and hanging from rods, or mounted on wood, with their delicate markings and subtle palettes, may suggest damaged Chinese landscape scrolls, or bedsheets, or sails, but their urgent message is all too clear.
