Sitka's Fall 2020 residency program began in October when the first of 30 invited residents from diverse practices and backgrounds arrived. In this third Show & Tell event of the season, you will hear from:
For Justin Gibbens, the natural world is filled with mystery, fascination and intrigue, and the relationship humans have with it is often layered, complex and ambiguous. It is through his work that he celebrates this.
Alice Langlois is a stop-motion animator and musician from rural Western Massachusetts, the place which fostered her deep love for nature and the environment. From leaves and seed pods to feathers and scales, elements of the natural world are an integral part of Alice's artistic process, making their way into her films, music, and sculptures.
Alejo Salcedo is an artist from Washington DC, exploring the intersection of food, art, and medicine. Beyond a visual art practice, Alejo seeks to live a creative lifestyle through an interactive existence with the natural landscape.
M Prull is a multimedia artist using photography to explore transgender bodies and identities. His practice asks the question: what if the depiction of transgender identities could be met with empathy instead of objectification?
Emma Akmakdjian is an installation artist whose creative research draws comparisons between systems of the body and the environment to understand how we personify place and develop identity through our interactions with non-human nature.
Brittney Cathey-Adams is a photographic artist currently located in Portland, OR. Her work includes themes of body politics, fat positivity, and interrogating ideas of representation through self-portraiture.
Watch for more interactive opportunities to engage with Sitka's residents as the season continues.
Please join us for this event and help us welcome Justin, Alice, Alejo, M, Emma and Brittney to the Sitka Center and Cascade Head.
