With Kara Lynch
What are sustainable practices that expand and promote our vision of freedom? This course will focus on installation and community engaged art practices in conversation with diverse media and the local ecosystem. The thematic focus of the seminar will critically engage in the question: How can we create a dynamic practice in which to pursue and create artistic, agricultural, ecological, and socio-economic equity? Aware of our daily investments in settler-colonialism, how will we in our practices steward this land with seven generations at the forefront? As a class we will draft a mission statement and plans of action through installation to approach these questions. This hands-on, project-based course will look at relationships built between artists, activists, agriculturalists, and communities to build a sustainable past, present, and future. This course will introduce students to a variety of visual art media and time-based art production. This course is ideal for students interested in art, ecosystems, agroecology, collective and community engagement.
