FEMA: Fear Environmental Mayhem Ahead, a multi-disciplinary art exhibition focused on climate crisis flooding, will open at the Icebox Project Space, 1400 North American St., Philadelphia, on October 31, and run through November 8th, from 10:00 am to 6:00pm.
The work of artists from around the country will be presented in the gallery filled with water a foot deep. Attendees, on a timed-entry basis of 6 or less in a group, will be given rubber boots, or you can bring your own. Hanging overhead will be large paintings of the FloodFactor maps that show the city’s neighborhoods flooded out in the next 10–15 years. Next door will be an office of the AtroCity Planning Department with computer stations where you can look up when, and how badly, your own home will be flooded out.
“I have no doubt that the right to a climate system capable of sustaining human life is fundamental to a free and ordered society.”
— U. S. District Judge Ann Aiken
