Mana Contemporary Exhibit Targets Climate Change

An art exhibit at Mana Contemporary studio

Mana Contemporary, located in Journal Square in Jersey City, is currently showcasing an exhibit designed to encourage discussion about the imperiled health of our planet. Implied Scale: Confronting the Enormity of Climate Change features pieces that raise awareness about the many facets of this truly global challenge, as well as programs that include the world’s leading scientific minds on the subject.

Curated by Kele McComsey, the exhibit is on view by appointment through August 28. On Saturdays in August, the exhibit is open to the public with no reservations required.

Among the featured artists are Ames Prosek, whose site-specific installation of murals and works on paper, in his signature silhouette style, have transformed the gallery lobby; Zaria Forman, whose immersive installation features works on paper and video documenting her travels to the most remote regions of the world; Jeff Frost, who trained as a firefighter to create his film California on Fire; Alaska-based illustrator Ted Kim, whose large-scale mural lends a lighthearted aesthetic to express the serious nature of the human-environment relationship; and Catherine Chalmers, an engineer and artist whose work confronts the anthropocentric view of the world.

Location: 888 Newark Ave., Jersey City, NJ. For more information, visit ManaContemporary.com.
