Inherited Division: Second Hand Planet is a Youth Advisory Board project that explores how current environmental changes will manifest socially, economically, and politically in the year 2069. Although these effects may seem distant and passive in the present, in fact they are aggressively dynamic and will prevail in the future unless action is taken. From sea level rise and biodiversity to the growing prevalence of plastic islands, these nine young artists examine how these issues will impact them into adulthood.
Special thanks to Lise Haller Baggesen, whose 2016 Hatorade Retrograde project inspired this exhibition's theme and provides a jumping-off point for her upcoming Southern Exposure Off-Site Project.
