Being Together in Place

April 28, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

artist in residence exhibit

To accompany her installation The Persistence of the Unsorted, Artist in Residence Claire Pentecost presents special guests geographers Soren Larsen and Jay Johnson, authors of  Being Together in Place for a discussion of the agency of place itself.

From the authors:

“Coexistence begins in place—the places we come from and call home, the places we care for and struggle over, the places that sustain us, the places we share. We call this book “being-together-in-place”¹ because whether we acknowledge it or not, place convenes our being together, bringing human and nonhuman communities into the shared predicaments of life, livelihood, and land. Place calls us to the challenge of living together. At root, this is a challenge of worldviews involving many different ways of being whose relationships are interdependent yet asymmetrical, sometimes harmonious and other times in conflict….”
