“The C40 Mayors Summit in Mexico City will bring together the largest group of local leaders fighting climate change since COP21. C40 cities around the world are leading the way in reducing carbon emissions and protecting people from potential risks. Their work is setting a strong example for others – and the Summit is a great chance for cities to share their progress, learn from one another, and help the world reach the goals that were set in Paris.”
– Michael R. Bloomberg
This exhibition will be displayed in the open galleries at Chapultepec Forest, one of the most emblematic sites of the city. In order to recover public spaces and promote the visual arts in Mexico City, Chapultepec Forest was remodeled & adapted to display new proposals of art. The outdoor exhibition will feature large scale photographs which will be installed on free standing modules in the main entrance to the park and on the Chapultepec Fences along Reforma Avenue.
Building upon the original exhibition of photographs presented at COP21 in Paris (December 2015), this expanded exhibition continues to explore the ideas of our global climate in transition. The collective imagery aims to awe and inspire, to challenge and confront the viewer, and to provide more understanding and awareness about our environment and how it continues to evolve with our actions and choices.
