This walk-through and conversation will highlight various ways in which artists in Poem of the Earth: From Ego to Eco incorporate nature in their work as a means to inspire a reconnection with the natural world, engendering more environmentally sustainable attitudes. The curator and artists will talk about the genesis and development of the ideas for this show, as well as the different materials, techniques, and subject matter of the works included in it. The speakers will discuss how social and political engagement is embodied in the shared art practices of many of the artists in the show.

She holds an MA in Contemporary Art from the Sotheby’s Institute of Art and a Master’s degree in Business Administration with specialization in International Marketing.

One Hundred Thousand Whys by Furen Dai (video still), 2019

The workshop will start with a screening of the artist’s short, 10-minute film One Hundred Thousand Whys (2019) named after the popular Chinese children’s science book series. Then, the children will create their own books from reused and upcycled materials guided by the artist who will help them incorporate their own questions about life, nature, and science into their projects. At the end, each child will be able to take home their own handmade book as a souvenir of this unique and interactive art experience!
