I’ll be helping lead this panel discussion and happy hour sponsored by PICA with Portland Ecologists Unite.
January 16, 2013
PICA (415 SW 10th Ave, Suite 300)
Wine and refreshments will be served
This month, PICA plays host to Art + Ecology Unite, part of the monthly conversations series, EcoUnite, for those who like to discuss today’s pressing issues with drinks in hand! ART + ECOLOGY UNITE is a program of Portland Ecologists Unite.
Join us at PICA for this month’s EcoUnite, featuring a brief overview of some art projects concerned with land and the environment, followed by a panel discussion with Portland-based artists Adam Kuby, Linda K. Johnson, and Stephen Hayes, who will discuss environmentally-aware work of their own. Following the panel, stay for more drinks and casual break-out sessions with other artists, ecologists, and the general public.
Some of the overlaps we might consider throughout the evening include: how ecology acts as a soft curation of the environment; visual identification and rendering; the aesthetics of ecology; ecology as a spontaneous and imaginative practice; and the intersection of art, ecology, and activism.
