Participatory Art Projects — 
Global Awareness / Local Action

Xavier Cortada

Monday, October 12, 2009

5:00 PM (CDT), 005 Biggin Hall
Auburn University

Miami-based artist Xavier Cortada discusses eco-art projects in which he engages the environment directly through actions that address climate change and environmental restoration. In addition to raising awareness of these issues, many of Cortada’s works also invite the participation of individuals and communities to create change at the local level. Cortada will discuss his work as an eco-artist, especially his on-going efforts with the restoration of the Florida mangrove forests, a participatory art project featured in the exhibition Water: Three States. A reception will follow the lecture.
