PETER D'AGOSTINO: A-BOMBS/CLIMATE WALKS – TRANSMISSION GALLERY

October 2 - November 21

Peter d'Agostino:A-bombs / Climate walks, the artist's personal view of nukes and the changing climate, will be on display at the Transmission Gallery, October 1- November 21, 2020.

Even before the world's COVID pandemic took hold early in 2020, the Board of the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists moved their Doomsday Clock forward to 100 seconds to midnight signifying that we are living in history's most dangerous era, as "Humanity continues to face two simultaneous existential dangers""nuclear war and climate change." Recent and restored works in the Peter d'Agostino: A-bombs / Climate walks exhibition reflect these concerns.

Gallery exhibition: October 1 – November 21, 2020
Online preview: August 1 – September 30, 2020
