COAL + ICE is a documentary photography exhibition that brings together the work of over 50 photographers and video artists from around the world to visualize the climate crisis – its causes and consequences – as a large-scale immersive experience. COAL + ICE is co-curated by Magnum photographer Susan Meiselas and renowned exhibition designer Jeroen de Vries, and led by Orville Schell, the Arthur Ross Director of the Center on U.S.-China Relations at the Asia Society.
For its most recent presentation, Asia Society was honored to collaborate with the Kennedy Center to bring COAL + ICE to our nation’s capital for its East Coast premiere from March 15 to April 23, 2022. COAL + ICE was uniquely adapted for the Kennedy Center. 50 projectors illuminated the 30,000-square-foot exhibition space built on the Kennedy Center’s REACH Plaza.
