Le Future est Fragile, Prenez en Soin

Agnes Denes' Flag Raising

The pioneering environmental artist, Agnes Denes, who planted a wheat field against the backdrop of New York’s Twin Towers in 1982, has created a flag artwork: Le Future est Fragile, Prenez en Soin (The Future is Fragile, Handle with Care), as a cultural call to action in response to the dual crisis of COVID-19 and climate change. Healing Arts are currently looking to secure an iconic location in Paris to raise the flag as part of its Paris activation and to mark the conclusion of it's 2021 campaign.
