Transporting: oil, water, arteries and veins in the Amazon
Installation by Patty Bode and Ecuadorian Artists
Monday, November 17 - Friday, December 5, 2008Augusta Savage Gallery
Free and open to the public.
This exhibit features paintings by artists from the Secoyan community in Ecuador, and artist / educator Patty Bode, who was a recipient of a grant from the Augusta Savage Gallery's Arts International Residency (AIR) Program in 2007. She taught classes in the Ecuadorian rainforest for the length of her residency. This collaborative show transports us to the Amazonian rainforest at the intersection of indigenous life and global oil production, consumption and contamination. It comments on the erosion of the Amazon environment and indigenous ways of life, while celebrating the Secoyan's resilience and resistance to globalization.
