I have organized a conversation with five other artists who have made public works about the Thames. Join the conversation:
Confluence: Public Art and the Thames / A Conversation with Six Artists
Monday 11 September, 7 pm
Thames Tunnel Shaft of the Brunel Museum
Artists: Maria Arceo, Dr. Cathy Fitzgerald, Raewyn Harrison, Anne Krinsky, Dr. Loraine Leeson and Ali Pretty
Moderator: Colette Bailey
Confluence is a panel discussion with six artists who have made public works in response to the river. Maria Arceo, Dr. Cathy Fitzgerald, Raewyn Harrison, Dr. Loraine Leeson and I will be in conversation about our Thames projects with Curator Colette Bailey. Colette Bailey is the Director of METAL and also curates the biannual Estuary Festival.
The conversation will examine the artistic process of channeling a passion for the Thames into a public art work. The artists work in a range of media – sound, sculpture, photography, video, ceramics, paint and projection and several have created participatory events. Taken together their works investigate the river's varied aspects – its biodiversity, plastics and pollution, stories from river communities, Thames architectural structures and archeology of the foreshore.
