Beeing in the World: Artistic Perspectives on Nature and Culture

Artist-led Tour 6:30 PM Panel 7 PM FREE

Panel Discussion with Penelope Stewart, Diane Borsato, Panya Clark Espinal

Moderated by Jenn Law

Penelope Stewarts ongoing artistic investigations mine the rich metaphoric and poetic associations of the beehive, viewed as a democratic model and symbol of idealism particularly by Modernist architects and designers. After an artist-led tour through Stewart's exhibition VANITAS, visual artists Diane Borsato and Panya Clark Espinal join in a conversation moderated by artist, writer and researcher Jenn Law, to examine connections between their respective practices and explore shared interests in the relationship between nature and the built environment, utopian constructs, social interaction and ecological impact.
