McEvoy Foundation for the Arts presents a panel discussion with artists who investigate social and environmental impacts on the elements essential to life.
Participants: Don Hankins, Eve Mosher, Ranu Mukherjee, and Rosten Woo, with moderator Heidi Quante.
Heidi Quante is an interdisciplinary artist who has been designing environmental and human rights public engagement initiatives since 2003. Quante is the founder of Creative Catalysts, an organization that brings together experts from diverse disciplines to devise innovative ways to raise awareness, inspire dialogue, and spark action on pressing social and environmental issues.
Don Hankins is a Plains Miwok traditional cultural fire practitioner and professor working to restore fire as an eco-cultural process within California, Australia, and other landscapes.
Eve Mosher is an artist and interventionist living and working in New York City whose works use investigations of the landscape as starting points for audience exploration of urban issues in relationship to water.
Ranu Mukherjee is a visual artist who lives and works in San Francisco. She combines drawing, painting, and print with video, animation, and choreography, to call up the forces of hybridity, diaspora, and speculative fiction.
Rosten Woo is an artist, designer, and writer living in Los Angeles. His projects aim to help people understand complex systems, reorient themselves to places, and participate in group decision-making. He acts as a collaborator and consultant to grassroots organizations and produces public artworks about the politics of place for cultural institutions and local, and regional governments.
"Water, Fire, Earth, Air" is presented in conjunction with MFA's fall exhibition, "No Time," which explores human relationships to the natural world in the past, present, and future.
Free. Advance reservations through Eventbrite.
