For this exceptional global event, Nicole King has been selected as one of the official cultural events to present a personal exhibition of 35 paintings: “Advocacy for Living Water” from September 3 to 11, 2021. She has chosen a large selection of her most important activist paintings from the past 10 years. Her paintings will raise awareness on three main themes of the World Conservation Congress: Oceans, Freshwater and Climate Change, for example: endangered species (sea turtles, polar bears, large predatory fish), exploding platforms, waste that invades us, threatened ecosystems of mangroves or coral reefs…
Nicole King will be in Marseille at the Parc Chanot, for the World Conservation Congress organized by the IUCN during 8 days to explain her work and to put forward the power of the transdisciplinarity between “Art & Ecology” during two conferences:

- Presentation of an hour dedicated to the congressmen: “Art and ecology: a common crisis of the beauty?“, interview between an eco-artist and a philosopher, Mr. Christian Noorbergen. Painting, guardian of the beauty of nature, can contribute to sounding the alarm on the disappearance of biodiversity and the ubiquity of pollution.
