ABout the Event

Join artist Andrea Bowers in a conversation with Dr. Kaitlin Reed as they discuss Bowers’s work as an activist, the current state of environmental justice movements, and the ways that art practice intersects with pressing issues of our time. Informed by Dr. Reed’s research and scholarship, the two will discuss ways that white supremacy bears upon climate issues, as well as Indigenous relationships to land and ecological management systems within the context of current wildfire management in California.

The conversation is introduced by Michael Darling, MCA James W. Alsdorf Chief Curator, and Connie Butler, Hammer Museum Chief Curator, who are organizing the upcoming exhibition Andrea Bowers, at the MCA and the Hammer Museum.

This program is produced in partnership with the Hammer Museum.
