Special Lecture with Zaria Forman
Friday, December 2 - "Stillness and Momentum Through Climate Change"
Artist Zaria Forman
The inspiration for Forman's drawings began in early childhood when she traveled with her family throughout several of the world's most remote landscapes, which were the subject of her mother's fine art photography.
Zaria’s most recent achievements include participation in Banksy’s Dismaland (Aug-Sep 2015), a solo exhibition at Winston Wächter Fine Art in New York City (Sep-Oct 2015), and a four week art residency in Antarctica aboard the National Geographic Explorer (Nov-Dec 2015). Last November Zaria delivered a TEDTalk at the Town Hall Theater in NYC that aired on PBS, and is featured on TED.com. Zaria recently flew over Antarctica with NASA's Operation IceBridge; the largest airborne survey of Earth's Polar ice. Zaria recently spoke at Harvard University’s Center for the Environment, where her drawings will remain on display for the 2017 academic year. Her next solo show is at Winston Wächter Fine Art, Seattle, WA, June 21 - August 5, 2017.
Zaria Forman’s works have appeared in National Geographic, Smithsonian Magazine, the Wall Street Journal and The Huffington Post. Zaria was featured on Good Day New York and Fox News and was interviewed by Lucy Yang on ABC7 Eyewitness News. Her drawings have been used in the set design for the Netflix TV series House of Cards.
