In collaboration with Critical Dialogues, please join Tyler School of Art for a lecture by visiting artist Sarah Kavage.
Kavage is a lead artist for the Alliance for Watershed Education of the Delaware River, to plan and design a series of ecological artworks for multiple environmental centers throughout the watershed. The work will use natural materials found in the different parts of the watershed to create public spaces that will be activated with performances, community gatherings, teachings, and conversations.
Currently, Kavage is working with Phragmites, an invasive plant species found throughout the United States, more commonly known as reed and for its use in thatched roofing and basket weaving. We will be having a conversation around what is invasive, and how can we imagine utilizing space during a pandemic.
