Ringling College of Art and Design printmaking faculty Eszter Sziksz attended the Arctic Circle art and science residency in October, where she sailed aboard a ship for three weeks making site-specific work, screen printing messages with climate concerns onto the glacial ice and snow using ash.
Sziksz presented selections from this work at “The Universal Declaration of Human Rights at 75: Rethinking and Constructing its Future Together” conference at Ghent University on December 7. The presentation, “The Wind Whispers’ project: The Interface of Law and Art in Representing Children’s Voices for Climate Justice,” is a collaboration with children’s rights lawyer Kata Dozsa. Their talk is part of the panel on Literature, Art, and Climate Justice.
She was also nominated for Southern Graphics Council International’s Emerging Printmaker, Mid-Career, and Excellence in Teaching Awards.
