Owning Earth re-opening reception and catalog release party

June 11 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

The spring reopening of Owning Earth, an outdoor sculptural exhibition, will be held at Unison Arts. Come meet the artists, experience the artworks and get your copy of the exhibition catalog, which will be launched at the event. Light refreshments provided.
The artists of Owning Earth challenge the intolerable cruelty of deeply entrenched systems of domination — over our environment, other species and other humans — and imagine alternatives based on mutuality and reverence. Among other works, the artists in Owning Earth weaved flags created from site-specific soil profiles, laid patterns of the legendary Underground Railroad Quilt Code, erected monuments to bee democracy and built outdoor laboratories to test radical climate solutions.
Artists include: Sariah Park, Colin Lyons, Jean-Marc Superville Sovak, Brooke Singer, Christy Gast, Eliza Evans, Matthew Friday & Alex Young, Alejandro Chellet, Melinda Kiefer, Sam Spillman, Emilie Houssart, Eileen Wold, Eleanor King & Lucy Pullen, Michael Asbill & Derek Stroup, Joel Olzak, Sarah Max Beck, Robert C Beck, and how to perform an abortion (Maureen Connor, Landon Newton and Kadambari Baxi with Eugenia Manwelyan)
Visitors are invited to experience the exhibition at their own pace. A free self-guided audio tour can be accessed through QR codes on-site. For additional information, visit www.unisonarts.org. Unison is located on 68 Mountain Rest Road in New Paltz.
