What does it look like when you love the land and the land loves you back? Show how you’d like to love the earth with messages of possibility, using upcycled containers and jars, natural materials, plants and clay to create a mini terrarium. As you design and build your terrarium, imagine what it might feel like to be an urban planner planting more street trees, an environmentalist protecting watersheds or a policy-maker helping to daylight a brook.
*Shine only. Check the website the morning of for the status of the day’s program.
Tuesday, October 8, 2-3PM
New York Community Trust Van Lier Fellow Tiffany Jaeyeon Shin will be in conversation with Dr. Vanessa Agard-Jones, moderated by Curator of Visual Arts Eileen Jeng Lynch. Topics include queer ecologies, fugitivity, toxicity, and decoloniality. The conversation will be pre-recorded and screened with a live Q &A on Facebook and can be viewed on this page.
This program is in conjunction with Tiffany Jaeyeon Shin’s Sunroom Project Space exhibition M for Membrane, which explores the membrane, mystery, and magic of microbial forms, fungi, and indigenous mold. In this indoor and outdoor multimedia installation, the fermenter—the artist—facilitates a community of indigenous leaf mold created from decomposed leaves, embodying the role of the witch, the scientist, and the alchemist, and from it, looks for possibilities of animacy and deep time.
Saturday and Sunday, October 10 and 11, 10AM-1PM
For Indigenous People’s Day, learn more about the history of the land on which you now live. Learn the story of how the ancestral lands of the Iroquois-speaking people came to grow from a turtle’s back. Create screenprints of this special turtle and imagine the indigenous tradition of the “Honorable Harvest,” then use dirt to create drawings that honor the history of the ancestral lands of the Iroquois-speaking people.
A 28-acre public garden and cultural center overlooking the Hudson River and Palisades, Wave Hill’s mission is to celebrate the artistry and legacy of its gardens and landscape, to preserve its magnificent views, and to explore human connections to the natural world through programs in horticulture, education and the arts.
