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.
