For her Atmospheres series from the 1960s and 70s, Judy Chicago set off smoke bombs and pyrotechnics in various Californian landscapes to create dramatic, ephemeral performances. She “softened” and “feminized” the landscape, expanding her feminist politics to include a commitment to the natural world.
This conversation brings together artists who work across ecology, landscape, and liberatory politics to ask what’s at stake in working with and within the natural world today. How are social and environmental issues intertwined in artistic practice? And what impact does the legacy of 1970s ecological feminism have for artists today?
Artists Torkwase Dyson and Joan Jonas will discuss their work and their practices in relation to topics of feminism and the environment with moderator Candice Hopkins, Executive Director of Forge Project.
