Projections: Protecting this sacred resource
PROJECTIONS: Protecting this sacred resource
Hosted by the Richard F. Brush Gallery, the exhibition will take the form of a series of outdoor projections. In single-channel video projections, dance performances and artworks will flow together in one continuous stream. Water is the guiding force, a visual link that unites the different visions, artistic disciplines, and geographies.
Taking place as part of the North Country Art, Land, and Environment Summit, a St. Lawrence University Arts Collaborative Project, images will be projected on the exterior of the Owen D. Young Library throughout the month of September 2020, at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, September 11, 18, and 25.
The outdoor exhibition is curated by the artist couple Blake Lavia and Tzintzun Aguilar-Izzo. Through contemporary dance and photography, they delve into the environmental history of the Kaniatarowanénhne / St. Lawrence River Watershed on traditional Haudenosaunee territory and at the Antigua Watershed of Veracruz, Mexico, Totonac / Nahua Territory. Other artists included in the exhibition are Mohawk quilter Iakonikonriiosta, Mohawk ceramicist Katsitsionni Fox, and the Mexican painter Alberto Migort.
