Opening Celebration: Ecologies of Elsewhere

Friday, February 10

Through a dynamic presentation of multidisciplinary artworks and activations, Ecologies of Elsewhere explores the physical and symbolic properties of plant life as a means to explore issues that shape contemporary society, such as migration and diaspora; gender and sexuality; extraction and exploitation; the legacies of colonialism; and the potential for healing. From Lisandro Suriel’s use of the layered legacies of cotton within the West Indies, to Eric Gyamfi’s employment of plant-based emulsions to develop analog photos, to Ilze Wolff’s work examining the life of South African writer, activist, and gardener Bessie Head (1937 – 1986), each work in Ecologies of Elsewhere offers a critical ecological lens on to a range of subjects, both personal and political, contemporary and historical.

Join us on February 10 to celebrate the opening of this collaborative exhibit. RSVP's are encouraged but not required.
