Grand Palais, 3 Avenue du Général Eisenhower, 75008 Paris
Curated by Anne-Marie Melster
What is an artist’s role at a political conference? George Steinmann, who often works at the intersection of art, science, and politics, will explore this question at the COP21 UN Climate Change Conference, where he will act as a the first ever official “artistic observer.” Steinmann will produce sketches, mind maps, drawings, and photographs, which will immediately be posted online and on social media, and will serve as the basis for an exhibition in 2016. Symbioses of Responsibility is an exemplary expression of sustainable art; its aim is to broaden the scientific and political debate on climate change from an aesthetic perception and artistic point of view. Steinmann will also participate in a panel in collaboration with the Embassy of Switzerland in France at the Grand Palais as part of Solutions COP21 (date TBD).
