Currently Speaking: The Presence of Gardens in Contemporary Art (Virtual Event)
February 5, 2024

5-6:30pm

​A virtual panel discussion with “In the Garden” exhibiting artists Carlos Amorales, Cameron Davis, Wylie Garcia, Valerie Hammond, Mary Mattingly, and Paul Anthony Smith.

Moderated by Rachel Moore, Executive Director + Director of Exhibitions. This will be hosted as a live Zoom event.

The Currently Speaking series hosts experts in various contemporary art genres and media to encourage casual discourse and meaningful interactions between our community, speakers, and the art they showcase. Artists in this exhibition use the metaphor of a garden to address climate change, decolonization, feminism, societal tensions, and our endangered environment by presenting work on the topic.
