On Friday, October 22, from 1–4pm (EDT), The World Around and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum present The World Around in Focus: Land.
This online public program focuses on individuals whose work highlights the agency of infrastructures and landscapes that are transforming lives and territories across the Americas today. Through commissioned films and live conversations, stories will be shared about environmental activists focused on indigenous food sovereignty and water equity; filmmakers and artists interrogating literal and figurative mining that supports the Internet and digital technology; and designers engaged in dialogue at the intersection of policy, legislation, community, ancestry, and spatial justice.
Participants include Holly Jean Buck, author and environmental and social scientist; Carolina Caycedo and David de Rozas, artists; Simon Denny, artist; Elizabeth Hoover, author and academic; Renee Kemp-Rotan, urban designer and initiator of Africatown International Design Idea Competition; and Joseph Kunkel, Executive Director of Sustainable Native Communities Design Lab at MASS Design Group.
This online program is free and will be broadcast on the museum’s YouTube channel.
