Climate Change Speaker Series: Interactive Art on the Land

Outpost hosts a public forum for 516 Arts' DECADE exhibition- a celebration of their 10th anniversary- which features a group exhibition and a series of off-site projects that draw from the diverse local, national and international artists with whom 516 Arts has worked since its inception. This public forum features photographer/muralist Chip Thomas; choreographer/dancer lisa nevada; and new media artist Andrea Polli. Moderated by Andrew Connors, Curator of Art at the Albuquerque Museum, the discussion explores how these artists develop work about the environment in consideration of the audience. They will discuss how they strive to engage people in their art forms in outdoor rural settings and will be joined by some of the dancers from nevada's project as well as Andrea Polli's collaborator John Donalds from their project, Biocultura.
