The 83rd installment of Carnegie Museum of Art’s Forum series presents a thematic group exhibition that addresses the urgency of climate change. The title, taken from a quotation in Pittsburgh environmentalist Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring (1962), identifies the show’s focus on the fraught relationship between humans and the environment.

This exhibition features new and existing work by ten Pittsburgh-area artists that acknowledges the transitory state of the environment; the ecological, economic, and public health consequences on the horizon; and how these conditions intersect with their own lived experiences. Through their selections of materials, the use of data and documentation, their surrealist imaginings, or references to urban development and disconnection from nature, these artists grapple with the ecological present and its uncertain future.
