Water as Material

presented by CURRENT:LA Hub

Come by and join us at our second discussion Water as Material, a material that shapes our environment, our cities, our bodies but it also acts as a force for creativity. This discussion will take a deeper look at the LA River and how our panelists’ lives, work, and art practice have been entrenched in the river as a material for critique, research, advocacy and art.

This conversation will be moderated by Bettina Boxall, a Pulitzer Prize-winning environmental reporter for the Los Angeles Times, in conversation with Lila Higgins, a museum educator at Natural History Museum, naturalist, and LA River advocate; Joe Linton, an artist, author and activist who authored and illustrated Down by the Los Angeles River: Friends of the Los Angeles River’s Official Guide; Claire Robinson, managing director Amigos de los Rios - Emerald Necklace Group which spearheaded the development of a regional network of open spaces by the LA River Corridors; Lauren Bon , an artist who's work involves constant invention of novel social practices for political and environmental justice; Carren Pineda (Jao) from KCET DEPARTURES , a reporter who had covered the LA river extensively will do an introduction.
