About the Juror:

Diane Burko works at the intersection of art, science and the environment with an artistic practice that is devoted to bringing the challenges of climate change to light through her artistic practice as well as her public engagement activity. Having spent over four decades exploring monumental and geological phenomena in a wide range of works from painting to photography to video, in 2006 she decidedly began devoting herself exclusively to the exploration of environmental issues. Her artworks integrate experiences of on-location explorations, interactions with scientists in their labs and research data all resolved into captivating climate-conscious works that encourage critical thinking about the role humans are having on the environment. Her most recent museum show, SEEING CLIMATE CHANGE, clearly demonstrates this.
