MILK AND WATER: A conversation between Patty Chang and Astrida Neimanis
Thursday, October 22, 2020 | 3PM
Join artist Patty Chang in a special conversation with Astrida Neimanis, author of Bodies of Water: Posthuman Feminist Phenomenology, marking the opening of Patty Chang’s exhibition Milk Debt at 18th Street Arts Center. Neimanis and Chang will discuss confluences in their respective practices in the shadow of both a global pandemic and climate catastrophe. Their conversation charts a route through messy questions of toxic embodiment, mothers and their labors, environmental justice, and the banality of planetary collapse. How, they wonder, might the shifting scale of our fears can teach us something about what matters?
A 48-hour online screening of Chang’s film Milk Debt will play for 24 hours before and after the talk. Please register to gain access to the private screening.
