A new art installation by British artist and filmmaker John Akomfrah that focuses on climate change will open in the Boston Harbor next spring.
“Purple” is an immersive six-channel video installation that sheds light on climate change’s effects on human communities, biodiversity, and the wilderness, according to a news release.
The film will be shown from May 26 through Sept. 2, 2019 at the Boston Harbor Shipyard and Marina.
Akomfrah, who was recently named next year’s resident artist by the Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston Watershed, is among a growing movement of artists around the world who are using art to bring a sense of awareness and urgency to the potentially catastrophic impacts of climate change.
